Giant Things of Panama City

Saturday, October 18, 2008

Wherever you go in the world, it's comforting to know that there are Giant Things to see and admire. This guy lives in front of the Shrine Building in the Albrook region of Panama City. I really dig his fez and his white shoes.

This was on my first morning in Panama. There was a tropical screech-owl calling nearby.

It sets my mind at ease to know that Mr. Goodwrench is watching over you, even in Panama. Note position of the hands--these giant fiberglas men were originally produced as storefront ads for Mr. Goodwrench, but they've been adapted to all kinds of purposes, made into doctors, lawyers, Indian chiefs...the hands tell all.

Big hands, I know you're the one.

Its not often that the V. Femmes get quoted on this blog, but I am glad you did, Zick!
