Rusty Mechanism, a Giant Among Men

I found this big guy at an old-factory-turned-dining-retail-entertainment-complex called The Factory in Franklin, Tennessee, which is actually listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

So, anyway, his name is Rusty Mechanism. He is 20 ft. in height, and weighs in at a hefty 4600 pounds. (6.096m/2087kg)
And he stands as a tribute to American industry and all working people.

The closer you get, the more clever detail you spot.

Each hand took a minimum of 30 days to construct.


Giant-sized lunch box.

Six long years in the making.

Fun facts about Rusty.
I love this stuff!

Well, that makes two of us... ;)

But Rusty seems really cool! :)
