Boston Tour of Bigass Heads

So, I got the brilliant (?) idea to do a tour of all of the giant heads of Boston. Not sure if I'd want to do, say, a bike tour, or more like a party bus tour (bike tour is better for the planet and urban living and such, but party bus would be accessible to people who can't ride a bike).

The heads I've come up with so far are:





Joseph Wheelwright's "Sleeping Moon" sculpture at Ashmont Station


Antonio Lopez Garcia's "Day and Night" sculptures outside the Mofa











John Wilson's "Eternal Presence" at the National Center of Afro-American Artists



Ralph Helmick's Arthur Fiedler Memorial on the Charles River Esplanade







Can anyone think of any more giant heads in Boston?

Does this one count? It's more than a head. http://listart.mit.edu:8080/Obj3272$

I love that thing, but I'm going to say no, since it's an entire bust and it's in Cambridge. :o)

Well well, we at Urban Adventours may have to add this to their tour lineup next year...would you mind terribly if we took the idea?

Who knew Boston had so many big ol' noggins?! This reminds me that I would like to do a tour of all of Portland's parks. Only because I always find myself whining that there are no good parks here, which is of course incorrect.

Don't forget the baby heads at the MFA - they are actually kinda creepy .

Denise: I was expecting someone would do something along the politican lines...

CaT: Hmm, I had mostly been thinking about 3D heads, but could be convinced to include this.

Craiggles: As long as I get some royalties.

Ah-Clem: Um, I didn't!
