Group member shows height of sculpture - mImg 2554

Berkeley, California

Richard Katz has more colorful background on this sculpture.

"This fifteen foot enlargement of a seventh century Chinese key chain ornament
wasn't authorized by the city government; the city wanted to remove it, in fact.
Fred put it on the ballot in 1986, and the voters kept it.

I can't believe the Chinese had key chains in the seventh century 8-)
Nice that the voters wanted to keep this statue here. It's kind of cute!
