Robot Playing Guitar

We loved the peep-like birds nearly as much as the robot playing guitar.

Robot Playing Guitar

This 9 ft. robot dubbed the "Traveling Man Waiting on a Train" is one of three giant robots in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas. This one in particular is leaning against a piece of concrete from a tunnel that was removed. There are also birds that function as seats. I didn't see the other two, but they are on the same street.
