Quick stop off 27. The sculpture is lit at night and quite interesting. May search for the other ones next time through.

Colquitt has installed solar-powered boxes to tell the stories of the murals throughout the town! One is located just across the road from an iconic mural, with a map of other locations.

I photographed the Toth sculpture in 2009.

[Gary, 02/19/2016]

Peter Toth's original Indian Head in Colquitt, part of his "Whispering Giants" project, was his fourth, sculpted in 1973, 18 ft. tall and made of red oak. It soon fell victim to rot. Toth made a taller sculpture, relocated in 1990, and in 2007 he returned to touch up the sculpture and add a wood preservative. So it's probably still there!
