Where in the Hudson Valley Contest: “Larger Than Life” Statue

Can you identify this massive statue that stands watch over a local hot spot?

While this arm may not seem out of the ordinary, it actually belongs to a figure that stands more than 13 feet tall. When this giant was first constructed back in 2006 by New York City artist Maria Reidelbach, it was the largest of its kind. Now it ranks third tallest in the world, after an 18-foot-tall one in Poland and a 15-foot one in Iowa. This figure’s attire changes seasonally and has been spotted holding flowers, wearing a cozy winter scarf, and even sporting a giant hula-hoop. He makes his home in an open area that boasts everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to a petting zoo and a miniature golf course.
