Boothbay Harbor, ME
This Fisherman statue is installed in the parking lot entrance of Brown's Wharf, a restaurant, motel, and marina complex. He was made in 1968 for Brown's for $2,200. He was created by Rod Shutt, the same artist that made Amos. The statue is made of fiberglass, wood, and steel. He stands about 24 feet tall and talked at one time. The statue was rigged with a microphone to an office which allowed him to chat with visitors. Shutt's Amos also had a soundbox. The Fisherman was dressed in a red cape for the Christmas holidays in 2003. I don't know if this tradition continues. Before the Fisherman statue, there was a billboard with fisherman pointing towards the Wharf. For more, see this website. [map]

Eastport, ME
Chinese Chef
York Beach, ME
This 12-foot-tall fiberglass Fisherman was built in 2001 for the TV mini-series "Murder in Small Town X". It was restored in 2005. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

This Chinese Chef is installed on the roof of Sandy's Purple Palace. I assume there was previously a Chinese restaurant here. [map]
