Artist Don Kennell checks that everything is secured on his giant camel sculpture, titled Traverse, before sending it from La Puerta Originals on Wednesday in Santa Fe to the Googleplex in Mountain View, Calif. The 18-foot-tall, 6,000-pound statue will feature prominently inside Google’s headquarters.

Oh I'm glad it's not the majestic horse going! She makes me smile every day coming into town on HW 14. Santa Fe needs to buy your horse! We can't lose her amazing presence. She is part of our landscape now. Thank you for your great uplifting work Don. It is so needed and appreciated by so many here.

I look for Filly to still be there everytime I go by. Love all Don's work! Crouching panther is perhaps my fave.
