Giant Stag Made of Junk

The signature artwork for a housing development. 40 feet tall, excessive even in a state that celebrates excess. Built of rusty fenders, license plates, typewriters, wheels, bicycle seats, engine parts, etc.

Giant Stag Made of Junk

In a neighborhood west of San Antonio, the location of the Giant Stag is surprising ... and surprisingly easy to get to! While the height of the stag is impressive, the grace of such a colossal sculpture, made of junk no less, is a real testament to the artist, Florentino Narcis from Mexico City.

Directions are correct -- the stag is in the middle of the neighborhood. Very impressive.
