Grasshopper Made of Junk

I wouldn't say it's junk. It holds a sign for Widget World Studio, which makes all sorts of metal sculptures for yards. Personally I think this looks more like a cricket.

Seven-Foot-Tall Grasshopper made of Junk

A wonderful display of metal yard sculptures made by a local artist. The display includes a large standing metal grasshopper holding the artist's sign, and an eight-foot-tall ostrich riding a unicycle. New things are added to the display frequently, so you never know what else you'll see!
