I am a big fan of the show "The Walking Dead" so I thought this one was pretty awesome.
Here you can see some details of the flesh torn and the muscles and an open wound with bug infestation
The top part of his skull ripped open exposing the brain with a fly painted on it.
Below, the shoe has been worn where you can see details of his rotten foot.
The next set of pictures were taken in the evening and the light is not as great as my other photos. The next one is my favorite one. The name of it is Community Herky. All the details are different vendors or attractions in Iowa City. I just loved all the details.
I love how his mouth is the galaxy and his eyes are so awesome!
Check out his beak. It is the moon with the craters and all.
His chest, now this is my ultimate favorite thing about this Herky,
the phases of the moon. He is just awesome!!!
We love sci-fi and space in our house maybe this is why God gave me four boys. Oh, I have step daughters now but they were 14 and 17 when I moved in. Any way, we love Star Trek and Riverside, Iowa is the birth place for Captain Kirk, so naturally we all love Captain Herk statue.
Fun fact: The last weekend in June Riverside has a Trek Festival where they celebrate Captain Kirk.
I have never been to one yet but my son has.
The airbrush painting on this one make it look like real granite, thus the name is Granite Herky
I really like the tiger tattoo.
Happy Herky made me exactly happy. I could not help but smile at the statue representing Bob Ross. They made sure to include the paint pallet.
His paint brushes but what cracked me up the most was the Happy Tree button.
I loved this statue below as well. Do you see his details? I think he would have been neat to be placed inside the Shakespeare Global Theater we have in City Park but then again, most of the display time he would have been under water from the flooding so maybe it was a good thing he was housed indoors.
Iowa Bike n' Herky was my first statue I spotted. I love the fact they included an actual bike with him.
One of my favorites is the Wrestling Highlight Herky. I enjoy going to the meets with Todd and if we are unable to go I enjoy watching them on television. I have been fortunate once to go to the NCAA tournament and Iowa won. Iowa has produced many Olympic bound wrestlers.
They have one many NCAA tournaments. To be honest many people outside of Iowa do not like Iowa Wrestling, mainly because they were a power house for so long and known as the bad boys. I was very shocked at my NCAA tournament to see how many people booed Iowa. I did not enjoy the poor sportsmanship at all.
Another favorite is the Conductor Herky. I love his details.
Lastly another favorite is the America Needs Farmer Herky. He is made up of corn. Individual corn kernels have been mounted to make his design. I love this look.
