A Good View

When we reached Buena Vista, it wasn't long before we could see him from a distance. As we got closer, I got more curious. He was standing on an old mail truck without the wheels.



Meet Robot Cyborg Muffler Man. He is a 24 foot Pulverizer. He was created by our local artist Mark Cline. He is only a year old and stands in the front of a car junk yard. I think he is holding and smashing a motorcycle.



Have you noticed something in his chest? That is where the little alien sits with his stick controls, controlling the motions of his robot. He is a fearsome little guy!
This ends our little trip to Buena Vista, literally meaning "Good View". And who would have thought that the view would be a robot and a space alien.

“The Emites (Monsters) used to live there—mobs of hulking giants, like Anakites.”

I agree with Denise, this is fascinating, Ginny. Thanks so much for sharing.

A good art work and creative too. A funny, weird little guy at the control. Can the robot move?

I never expected to see a robot and space alien! Love the nice smile on the robot and cute little alien:-) This is such an unique and fun art work!

O.K., that was worth the wait!! Before this robot, the most unusual think I've spied in Virginia was Noah's Ark on the way to Charlottesville. Most people think Noah landed on Mt. Ararat but I know the truth!!

Best,
Bonnie
