Muscular Metal Workers

A fitting monument to iron workers.

[Evan, 08/05/2015]

The statue is all that remains of Peck Iron and Metal, a scrap yard that formerly occupied the property that's now a park. It was sculpted in the early 1980s by Peruko Ccopacatty, a Peruvian artist who walked around the property, gathering pieces to make the sculpture.
