Indian Head

The Indian Head has been in this spot since sometime in the early 1980s. There was a full sized one in Sand Run Metro Park for years, but some pranksters took a chainsaw to it and it was destroyed. I was a student at Fairlawn when the artist was working on it. The school has since been torn down and rebuilt and is now the Judith Resnick Learning Center.

Indian Head - Repaired by Peter Toth

I saw the artist hacking great chunks out of the statue. The local paper reported that insects had done so much damage that special foam would be used as filler. I passed by the statue several times and it looked like most of the repairs were done to the back and bottom part.

Peter Toth Indian Head

In Fairlawn, off of Interstate 77, a suburb of Akron, there is a giant Indian Head, carved from wood, beautiful, at least 30' high. It is located on the main road through that area, close to a Super K-Mart. I think it may be in front of a university or art school, can't miss it on main road.
