The Gardner – Iron Giant Sculpture

6706 28th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98117, USA

Darrell Toland, the sculptor of this magnificent piece, built the giant on “a whim” as it resonates with the rest of the neighborhood. The giant is a character from Hayao Miyazaki’s 1986 film Castle in the Sky. In the movie, it is known as the Laputa Iron Giant or Forest Guardian; however, in Toland’s front yard, the giant is referred to as “The Gardener.”
