Loveland, Colorado: Peter Toth Indian Carving

"Redman" is one of over 70 tree trunks -- scattered across the country -- that were carved by one man into big, skinny, Indian heads. Unveiled in 1979, the wood eventually rotted. Redman was taken down in December 2022. He's still there, but now he lies flat, gazing at the sky.

Redman Statue

One of the Whispering Giant series by artist Peter Wolf Toth. Installed in 1979, the elements had made his base unstable, so he was laid "to rest" in the same spot. This weekend, a local quarry donated stones around him. He is still visible from US Highway 34, just stargazing instead of facing down drivers.

Peter Toth Indian Carving

I had little interest in seeing this at first, but it's really pretty impressive. I wished I could get up close to see the details but there's a sign that says "No trespassing without permission," and I saw nowhere to ask for permission.

It kinda sneaks up on you as you drive on Hwy 34. It's massive. I'd like to see the other 69 Peter Toth Indians!
