This Miner and Burro are installed at South Pacific Auto. The Miner had been repainted by 2015 and had a smaller badge. By 2016, he had no badge at all.

This Atlas statue was installed on the roof of Orezona Building & Roofing Co. sometime between 2012 and 2015. This photo is from 2016. This statue is missing his globe. These statues were mass-produced and originally installed at Jack LaLanne Fitness Centers. There are still about a dozen of these statues on display around the country including these in California.

Grants Pass, OR


The 18-foot-tall fiberglass Caveman was installed here in 1971. The first caveman statue installed in town in 1956 was destroyed. The current statue was produced with a mold made by International Fiberglass from a sculpture created by Richard Ellis. Grants Pass has been known as the Home of the Caveman since 1922, a reference to the nearby Oregon Caves National Monument. This statue was set on fire by vandals in 2004 and was restored in 2005. The statue was restored again in 2014. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

An identical Caveman statue was built around 1969 by International Fiberglass for Time Town in Bolton Landing, NY. In 1981, that statue was moved to Magic Forest in Lake George, NY. In 2021, that statue was sold to the Caveman Club in Grants Pass. The statue will be installed somewhere in town.
