Demo Man

Demo Man, a 20-foot-tall metal man created by Dan Bellon of Bellon Wrecking and Salvage, stands at the intersection of Papin and Vandeventer in Saint Louis.

[Feral Boy, 03/31/2014]

Built of scrap in 2002, the skinny guy has a sledgehammer raised above his head and his name in metal across his chest. Dan Bellon owns the little patch of land that Demo Man stands on, so the city can't haul him away. June 2016: Photo added.
