Problem: Giant statue of Coatlicue
David Clifton writes: ‘It was in the Mexican exhibit in the Worlds Fair in 1984 in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA. It is over 8 feet tall, weighs around 200 pounds and is made of fiberglass. It has been in a Community Park in Northern Kentucky, USA since then and causes controversy to the unprepared visitor - we have assimilated a significant Mexican population in the last few years in this area and it seems to be unnerving to some of them. It is in a wooded section of the landscape and vines have started to cover it making it look very formidable especially when the snakes seem to like being around it! It is a sight to behold. Before I offer it up for sale ($5,000) I thought I would try to locate someone that would understand the background of the piece and appreciate what it is and maybe add to their collection or know of someone that might like to have it.’

Ian, if David hasn’t sold it yet or put it up for sale I would certainly love to give it a home. I’m sure I could find a place for it here at my home somewhere.

Have you tried the Smithsonian museum of the American Indian? They may interested.

Wow! I wish I had the funds and space to buy that thing! Perhaps a museum could use it in a garden?
