Sumo Wrestler in Red

This is a very nice and shiny red sumo wrestler, who's clearly taken care of. He is squatting, inexplicably, in front of a commercial real estate firm and across the street from a 1909 cathedral.

The red sumo wrestler is directly across the street from the Cathedral of the Madeline, which is also a delightful place to go in Salt Lake City.
