Peter Wolf Toth Indian Carving

In Brechtel Park, there's a large wooden carving of a Native American, one of Toth's "Trail of Whispering Giants" collection that can be seen across the country.

This is smaller than many of Toth's other giant heads, but it appears to be carved out of cypress, so it might possibly outlast all of the others.
