The Muffler Man

Sculpted back in the 60’s by the great sculptor Bill Swan for the International Fiberglass company, Muffler Men are giant fiberglass figures scattered across the USA. Used to draw attention for a variety of businesses, these statues are as popular today as they’ve ever been. In 2015 I decided to reproduce them as foot tall miniatures.
