Giant objects are literally everywhere you go. We seem surrounded by larger than life size reproductions of everyday and fantasy objects. This all originated in the dark ages when merchants advertised their services by hanging large trade signs to indicate their presence.
California in the 1930s through the 1950s made more than ample use of the giant roadside object to cater to its automobile culture. Nonetheless these great works are still among us today and hunting them down or happening upon them in your journey is always a great thrill.
