This is the sculpture called "Stargazer" designed by the artist Linda Scott.  It was erected in 1991 on a sod farm in Manorville, next to Route 111 and has been considered to be the gateway to the East end.  It is constructed out of structural steel and wood, and then covered in plywood and fabric and stucco.  It is fifty feet tall and has been vandalized in the past, and repaired.  Now it is deteriorating from the sun and the weather and old age.  There are plans afoot to raise funds to repair this.  The estimated cost of the work is estimated to be about $100,000.

Too bad it wasn't just made of steel - would probable last longer...There is a Calder sculpture in Hartford called Stegosaurus which I thought of when I saw your photo. It was dedicated in October 1973. bsk
