Giganticus Headicus in Kingman, Arizona: Big Green Head on Route 66 Roadside Attraction at Antares Point Visitor Center & Gift Shop

Giganticus Headicus is a giant 14-foot tall head that’s painted bright green (though has been known to switch it up in color from time to time). This big head is part Tiki, part Easter Island Moai, and all kitsch.

Find this Arizona roadside attraction among other quirky sites at Antares Point Visitor Center & Gift Shop on Route 66. Formerly the Kozy Corner Trailer Park, Arnold purchased the property in 2000, transforming it into a wonderland of his art ever since.

Some of the other artwork you’ll find at Antares Point Visitor Center & Gift Shop have included giant robotic ants crawling up the side of the A-frame gift shop, a windmill with blades made from 1950s furniture, a plywood rocketship sign, and a drum full of “baby rattlers” (don’t worry ophidiophobes, they’re rattles for babies).

A new “Guardian of Route 66” sculpture made by Arnold was unveiled at the site in 2021. The 16-foot-tall statue depicts a woman waving an American flag and carrying a big Route 66 shield.
