I recently finished reading a book titled Weird Michigan by Linda S. Godfrey. I was quite surprised that there is a giant head of George Washington in the town of Onaway, Michigan. This town is on the northern tip of the lower penisula.
RoadsideAmerica.com has this description of the head, "On Highway 68 just West of Onaway, Michigan a giant bust of George Washington rests in a field watching traffic go by. He appears to be made of stainless steel. I don't know the name of the artist, but the bust was fabricated in the nearby Moran Iron Works. An even more impressive sculpture of an eagle's head can be seen in the center of Onaway itself. This one features overlaid feathers that appear to be stainless steel and brass."
Tom Moran is the creator of the work. Weird America noted, "Gleaming in the sun as if elves had just given him a good polish, George appeared to stare thoughtfully towards the highway. We noticed that the field was adjacent to the Moran Iron Works and surmised that there might be a connection; turns out we were right" (p. 164).
I guess I am going to have to head up north and take a look at this someday. It looks fun. I hope I can convince my wife...
