Godzilla - 2015
Dale Lewis’s Godzilla was the People’s Choice Award winner in 2015.
Dale says, “It was between a dinosaur and Godzilla. I picked Godzilla because he’s funny, he’s only 10′ tall for transport, and because my studio has just a 10′ 8” ceiling. I borrowed Godzilla from a friend’s collection, it’s nice to have a 3-D model; usually I work off photos. Godzilla’s rough texture allows me to use my smallest pieces of stainless scrap. I watched my first Godzilla movie after deciding to make him.
Location: Belgrade Avenue at Nicollet Avenue, immediately off Veteran's Memorial Bridge in North Mankato
