I've driven past this statue many times on my Red Lodge and wondered what the story is behind it. I'm sure it has been told many times and is probably written several places online, but I haven't been able to find it. I've tried asking around the office and everybody here has seen it, but can't really tell me anything about it. Joliet has a pretty accomplished artist, but I don't see this particular piece on his site. What can you tell me about this giant?

One thing I know for sure is this: If I was a kid and had to walk by that thing after dark, I'd probably do it at a pretty quick pace.
