Jacksonville Beach, Florida: Statue of Pegasus

In 1961 an animal vet bought a Pegasus from Jacksonville Beach carousel and put it on the front lawn of his clinic. It was destroyed by a drunk driver in 2006, but the town missed it so much that local artist Ali Miruku created a new, eight-foot-tall fiberglass Pegasus, unveiled on the same spot in 2008. Morons tore off a wing and leg in 2013, the town again rallied, and a restored Pegasus returned in March 2014.

In plain site from the street. You'll be pleased to know, fellow roadsiders, that Pegasus still has all his parts!

[Jennifer Gilmore, 04/13/2014]

The original sculpture first appeared in 1961, but the town loves a winged horse, so he's been replaced and repaired as vital appendages have disappeared.
