The Easter Island Head is almost 40 years old now. Joe Stanke's signature, dated 1980, is on the back.

Easter Island Head

This is actually my grandfather's house and creation. He (Joe Stanke) and my uncle built it in the 1980s. He doesn't mind if people come to see it or take pictures of it, but please don't climb on it or make a ton of noise. He is a very talented artist and takes a lot of pride in his work. He is happy to share it with the world, but be mindful and respectful!

He looks great! Very big, and not made of concrete [RA: as we originally guessed], I don't believe. I knocked and he was semi-pliable and hollow.

Definitely just park at the Wendy's at the end of the block. Not a very long walk, maybe 70 yards. But no sidewalk or ADA accessibility.
