This section is for miscellaneous groupings of statues of people, animals, and things as well as collections of other "stuff" that defy categorization. The examples include private and public collections, as well as fiberglass and concrete statue manufacturers. The section is organized alphabetically by state.

Phoenix, AZ
This residence belongs to Don Parks who has a huge collection of fiberglass statues and other stuff. He began decorating his front yard with his acquisitions in 1971. In 2012, Parks bought another house across the street and expanded his display. His collection fills the front and back yards of both houses as well as their interiors. Some of the statues included are a Paul Bunyan, two cowboys, two Hobo Joes, a Theodore the Chipmunk, and a Harbie. For more, see this website. [map]

metal sculptures
Gila Bend, AZ


These metal sculptures include a dinosaur, rattlesnake, cactus with Gila monster, and flower. They are installed at a Shell gas station on the east side of town. The sculptures have been here since at least 2005. By 2011, they were covered with graffiti. By 2016, only the dinosaur and snake were left. The statues had been repainted brown. They were damaged by 2017. By 2019, the snake was gone. Only the dinosaur remains. Does anyone know who made them and when? Around 2020, five modern metal dinosaurs were also installed. [map]
