Log your own Whispering Giant

6 posts in this topic

The Whispering Giant Sculptures category is up to 10 Waymarks, but I would really like to see it keep growing.

buffaloman from Churchville, MD just logged Maryland's Whispering Giant. While he was visiting it, he had a chance to visit with Peter Wolf Toth, the sculptures' artist. He provided buffaloman with a list of Whispering Giants throughout North America. I posted the list on the category page, but I'll also post it here. If there is one near you, please take the time to Waymark it. All that is needed are coordinates and a good photo of the sculpture. If you can identify the type of wood and find the date it was dedicated that would be even better, but it's not required to log one. Here's the list:

From my understanding, unfortunately the Whispering Giant in St. Louis was struck by lightning and had to be removed.

Re: Vancouver, Washington

A wood carving of an Indian head was constructed in Esther Short Park and donated to the city in 1974. It was removed in 1992 after substantial deterioration from the elements. I do not know if the statue was destroyed or put in storage somewhere in Clark County.

Thanks for the information about the now removed Giants. I have marked those Giants as removed on our Whispering Giants detail page and given credit to those of you who passed the information along.
