Full-Size Easter Island Head

I just went to see the Easter Island head. The stucco no longer covers the frame. It is now almost invisible, as you can see right through it.

Easter Island Statue

A stucco Easter Island statue is in a vacant lot in Baltimore. It just kind of sits in the field watching the parking lot across the street. The statue is the work of MICA sculpture professor Sarah Doherty, who has been installing unique works of art in her neighborhood.

The head was completed in September 2012.
