Good old Bigfoot is represented here in this late 60's postcard from Willow Creek, California. (The place where the famed Patterson-Gimlin film was taken) This is considered the first bigfoot statue and was carved by Jim McClarin in the late 60's.

I haven't read the 1969 book, The California Feeling: A Personal View by Peter S. Beagle before, but apparently the author visited McClarin while he was carving this bigfoot statue.

Cool statue, I wouldn't mind having one like it in my front yard! It appears to be only about four feet tall, the high vantage point of the photographer makes it difficult to tell how large the thing really is.

That's awesome. I wonder if the *real* Bigfoot came to the unveiling ceremony.
