Modern Ruins 600

"Faces of Elysian Valley" -- aka "Egghead Stonehenge" -- stand in the middle of a Cypress Park traffic circle. Some of the sculptures were knocked over and damaged by a car in late 2019. They have remained that way ever since.

Cypress Park - In late 2019, a vehicle plowed into "Faces of Elysian Valley," a cluster of egg-shaped sculptures in the middle of the busy Riverside Roundabout.

Two-and-a-half years later, the public art installation nicknamed the "Egghead Stonehenge" remains damaged as some neighborhood council members are pushing for repairs.
