fiberglass Animals

I love giant Fiberglass sculpture. I just wonder where did the call for them come? 

It's clearly a chicken or egg situation. 

Did someone just take the chance make some animals & giant people sculptures & wish for the best? Or did some one say, "Hey, I wish I had a giant chicken/horse/gorilla" 

Was it miniature golf? But then, where did those giant lumberjacks come from. 

weird, indeed.

Just a little side note, Giant "people" were sold to businesses in the 60's for $300.

This horse is looking out a vet's office. The office building is purple.
