Bay Area

Was this bridge troll modeled on Ho? The bridge troll was installed in September, the final piece in the new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The troll is meant to be a protector and good luck charm, modeled after a similar statue placed surreptitiously by a steelworker on the old span after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Nice beard, bud.
