Attack of the Sculpturians

Attack of the Sculpturians is a kinetic interpretation of 1950s sci-fi movies. The 600-pound alien eats sugar, and set off into the harbor at Canton with its front tentacles thrashing, heading for the Domino Sugar plant on the south side of the harbor. The only thing that saved the plant was the crowd chanting to draw its attention to a giant marshmallow peep to draw it back to shore. It nabbed the peep, which rode out the rest of the race in its quivering mandibles. This is the third sculpture from Artex Fine Art Services, who created the 2005 Cake on a Lake and 2006 Hunk a Hunk of Burnin’ Junk. They received their third ACE award for following all of the difficult ACE rules—such as exiting the water without any outside help and the same two pilots riding the entire course. With all that sugar, they also received the Speed award for completing the racecourse the fastest.
