One-Eyed Jack, 2018

One-Eyed Jack.  Painted steel, 26’ x 16’ x 12’, Scottsdale, AZ, 2018.

One of the most fabled animals in the Arizona desert, the Jackalope is nearly impossible to trap. The ultimate in free-spirited animal form, it’s highly elusive. Early Arizona cowboys described it’s uncanny ability to mimic the human voice. When gathered by the campfires singing at night, Jackalopes could be heard mimicking their voices and  singing along in a voice that has been described as odd yet not unpleasant.

The adult Jackalope is believed to be about 9 lbs in weight and up to 3 feet in height. By contrast, One Eyed Jack is 26 feet high and weighs over 20,000 lbs.
