The Colossus of Islais Creek and other sightings

On our way to pay respects to the famous Copra Crane of Islais Creek, we spotted something attached to some old pilings.

Looks like the top half of an old statue.Much respect to whoever took this thing out in a boat and wired it to the pilings. Talk about dedication.Graffiti on a train.

Stencil art on the sidewalk. Art you can walk on. Rust never sleeps.

Edit: Ramon sent this link to a picture of the statue upright:
