Minnesota Caveman Reappears at New Location
The elusive Minnesota Caveman has reappeared at a new spot, hours away from last year's location.
If you're up for a road trip, this wandering landmark is well worth the drive. Plus, there's more than just one of them.
What exactly is this odd piece of artwork and just how did it end up in this Minnesota park? The answer is just as interesting as the 'Ice Man' himself.
In reality, it's not a real caveman frozen in the ice, of course. It's actually an elaborate sculpture created by numerous people.
The plastic man, encased in plexiglass has been the talk of the state every winter for the last few years. It's popped up in numerous spots, including Theodore Wirth Park. And he even has a name. It's Zug Zug.
So, where is Zug Zug this winter?
This year, Zug Zug has a new friend, and you can find them both in the Western Minnesota town of Detroit Lakes.
Zug Zug was made by artists Zach Schumack, Ian Molloy-Busse, Harry Hausk, and Gunnar Gapko. After being used in a local awards show, the sculpture hadn't seen the light of day outside Schumak's garage in quite some time. So, it was put up in the park and has been delighting passers-by (and maybe terrifying them too) ever since.
