|Olde Good Things
Los Angeles, CA
|These statues are installed on the roof of Olde Good Things. The lion is a mass-produced water fountain. These statues were frequently used at amusement parks. The Humpty Dumpty statue was also mass-produced and was typically installed at mini golf courses. I have not seen this moose or Taweret statues before. [map]|
Sprayfoam Inc. is owned and operated by Steve Fletcher who started the company as an insulation business. He began producing sculptures with the leftover materials. There is an Eagle sculpture here at the company's headquarters. There are other Fletcher sculptures in town including some Opossums and a Miner and Burro. [map]
The last photo above was taken at Fletcher's home which features this sprayfoam volcano at the front part of the property. [map]
Los Fresnos, TX
|Seven Seas is a huge retail and wholesale operation that sells seashells, nautical items, souvenirs, gifts, etc. In front of the store, there is a quarter mile coral reef with fish, a shark and other sealife. Two giant conch shells flank the store's entrance. Inside the store, is Bobz World with more dinosaurs and other statues. In 2011, a giant King Kong and Easter Island heads were added. By 2018, the statues had been painted but were obscured by foliage. In order to get a better view of them, you need to pay the $12 admission fee to Bobz Journey which has other statues of dinosaurs, cowboys, and more. Seven Seas is or was owned by U.S. Shell which also operates a second store with giant shells in Port Isabel, TX. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]|
