Long Description:
"About 15 miles east of Kingman, at the corner of Route 66 and Antares Road, a huge green head keeps a watchful eye on motorists as they pass by. There’s something eerie about it, like it popped out of the desert floor after tunneling there from Easter Island, where that famous colony of ancient rock heads resides.

But in reality, it’s a work of art called Gigantus Headicus, and it was fashioned from wood, metal and stucco by Gregg Arnold. The artist moved to the area in 2004 and bought the abandoned RV park where his creation now sits. The concept of the giant head came to him, he told a newspaper reporter, “because the place looked like it need something like this.”
