Olive Oyl

Photo: Boofhead in Amphitheatre Park, Leura

A little further up the road on Olympic Parade there is an amphitheatre (opposite Leuralla, Toy and Train Museum) with another sculpture overlooking a lovely view. Many people consider the giant statues of Boofhead and Olive Oyl a modern example of insensitively placed public art. What do you think?


Words to walk with:
From the theme song for Popeye (Olive Oyl’s boyfriend) --
"I'm strong to the finach, 'cause I eats me spinach, I'm Popeye the sailor man! (toot, toot)"
