The Muffler Man: Paul Bunyan

Presenting The Limited Edition Muffler Man Paul Bunyan Series 1

Available now on Etsy and eBay.

 

 

3 Muffler Men

This series features 7 hand painted resin casts of an original polymer clay sculpture based on the quintessential American roadside attraction, The Muffler Man.

Modeled after the Paul Bunyan version of the fiberglass giant, the statues stand a little over a foot tall (31.5cm) and come in 3 color schemes.

First, the BP color scheme based on the Muffler Man found at a BP service station in Elmsford, NY.

The actual statue in Elmsford is missing his arms but I think he looks much better with arms and an object to hold.

The second paint scheme is based on the Muffler Man found in Evergreen Park, IL that features a shiny metallic paint job but without the red lips.  I gave this one a shiny axe.

The third paint scheme is based on those Muffler Men wearing a yellow cap.

Both the axe and the muffler are held in place by velcro which allows the Muffler Man to be displayed with or without an object in his hands.  The statue can also stand freely off the base.
