Giganticus Headicus

While traveling to Flagstaff from Las Vegas I decided to drive Route 66: the great American highway. I was rewarded with a marvel known as Giganticus Headicus. Everyone that loves the weird and unusual -- this is a place for you.

Giganticus Headicus is a slightly arty version of an Easter Island head, built alongside the Mother Road in 2004 by Gregg Arnold.

He did it! The gift shop is open and I got my very own mini Giganticus Headicus. The artist was not present or we would have given him a big squeeze. Well done, Gregg Arnold, well done!

So fun to happen across this Fresh Green Sculpture! We were driving then stumbled across it, actually -- we totally got a giggle. Everyone's reaction is to walk up and pretend to pick the poor guy's nose. I thought it was just my kids, but as we were there others stopped and did the same thing -- as well as try to appear as if they were coming from his nose in their photo.

Idol head.

Giant Idol Head

It's a 15-ft. high idol head staring at you from the side of the road with a large painted pineapple next to it in front of a convenience store. There is a small "man" put in front of it to make the idol look huge.
