Statue of Businessman with Head Stuck in Building

This is one of those statues that you can pose with and take funny pictures. It is life size, and I'll bet a lot of people just walk right by it and don't notice how weird it really is. This is a mega-high rise building, so you will need to navigate the exterior approaches right up to near the front entrance.

The bronze businessman with a briefcase bends forward, his head lodged inside the granite facade of Ernst and Young. There are places that businessman could place his head that are less suitable for public display. This will have to do.
