Giant Naked Torso

We searched for two hours for this sculpture (and got a great foot tour of downtown Miami). Sadly, we finally found the last known location, only to be told it was removed right before Christmas and no current location is known.

The giant torso has moved again. Due to building construction on the corner of SE 9 and S. Miami Ave., it is now located along Biscayne Blvd along the western edge of Bayfront Park.
