Google Heads – Legends of the Sea Sculptures

This post shows all of the “Legend of the Sea” sculptures by Viktor on the Google Campus in Mountain View. I think these sculptures are fun to look at and engaging for their solidness. Also, their eyes stare beyond you, as if daydreaming and unaware you are staring at them. Beyond the title of “Legend of the Sea” – most people who pass by probably won’t know who these busts are commemorating without Googling it? (Couldn’t resist.)

See my previous trip post to Mountain View for other imagery around the Google campus.
