Fallen David
Fullerton, CA
This Fallen David statue is located at the California State University at Fullerton. This replica of Michelangelo's David was originally installed in 1967 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Cypress, CA. During an earthquake in 1987, the statue was knocked over and broken. It was donated to the university and put on display in 1989. The statue was originally over 13 feet tall. It is made of white Carrara marble. Students rub the statue's butt for good luck on their finals.

Fishermen's Memorial
Ventura, CA
The Fishermen's Memorial was dedicated in 2005. The arch is located at Ventura Harbor Village. It is about ten feet tall. It pays tribute to local fishermen that died at sea. The sculpture was done by Michel Petersen. She used plaster casts of four working fishermen for the artwork. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

Pharaoh's Adventure Park [gone]
Redlands, CA

2008:

Splash Kingdom Waterpark

2013:

This giant Sphinx guarded the entrance to Pharaoh's Adventure Park when this first photo above was taken. The park operated from 1996-2006. In 2012, it reopened as the Splash Kingdom Waterpark. The Sphinx and other Egyptian-themed statues and mini golf course inside the park were still there in 2013. By 2018, the Sphinx was gone. I don't know if the other statues are still there.
