Fascination with the Whale
Relax and look around... you are standing inside the stomach of the World's Largest Blue Whale. Built in the early 1970s by Hugh Davis as a gift to his wife (boy, I bet she was suprised), the Cartoosa Whale has been enjoyed by countless Route 66 travelers.
What is it with whales? We build them into mini-golf courses (Myrtle Beach, SC), fairytale parks (Schellsburg, PA), science centers (West Hartford, CT) and even amusement parks (Aneheim, CA). As if that weren't enough, we create inflatable whales and gigantic, metal whale-shaped things.

Look closely. No, those are not shrunken people admiring this Sunflower painting. It's just a giganti-massive-mungo version of the famous work, and is only one small part of The Van Gogh Project, the goal of which is the eventual creation of seven of these, which will be mounted on equally gigantic easels in countries around the globe.
