Return of the Giant Blue Head

 


I featured this fellow way back in 2012.  He's been sitting in front of Gebert Contemporary Art Gallery in Scottsdale for many years now.  The bright morning sunlight made him partially shaded in these photos but if you click the link, the photo back in 2012 had no shadow.

He's been there long enough now to become somewhat of a landmark in Old Town Scottsdale.  If I want to meet a friend for a walk I can always say "I'll meet you by the giant blue head."  My friend will know exactly where to meet me.

Very nice indeed. I bet everyone knows where the blue head is if they don't they will eventually.

Perhaps he's a proponent of Transcendental Meditation.

The shadow make him look like he's wearing a mask.
