Dillon, SC
Captain Cain
Myrtle Beach, SC
Numerous statues of Pedro are installed at South of the Border. He is the tourist attraction's mascot. [map]

Captain Cain is the mascot for the Cap'n Cain Golf mini golf. These photos are from 2004. The business closed in 2004 and was going to be demolished in 2007. However, it reopened in 2013. This statue has been repainted. His head position, beard and hat remind me of International Fiberglass' Pioneer statues. It's possible this statue was modified or created from the same mold with significant alterations. The Captain's pipe doubles as a light. For more, see this website. [map]

Hilton Head Island, SC
This bronze sculpture of Neptune is 12 feet tall and is part of the world's largest, figurative sundial. It was installed in 1983 at Shelter Cove Harbour. Neptune's trident is the pointer used in the 26-foot-wide sundial. The statue was designed by Wayne Edwards and cast at the Seward Johnson Atelier, then located in Princeton, NJ.

Man Walking an Alligator
Hilton Head Island, SC
This bronze sculpture of a Man Walking an Alligator was installed in 2011 in Compass Rose Park. The sculpture was based on a photo from 1962. The man depicted is Charles Fraser, a Hilton Head real estate developer. The six-foot-tall sculpture of Fraser was created by Susie Chisholm, while the 10-foot-long alligator was sculpted by Darrell Davis. For more, see this website. [map]
