    This project will place a life-size bronze statue of Nikola Tesla in Palo Alto, California near California Avenue in the heart of the Silicon Valley. A preliminary model of the Tesla Statue has been created and once finalized will be casted and installed in open public view later this year.

    From the photos, I am guessing this statue is near the building that has the Bank of America ATMs, which is about a mile away from Tesla headquarters.

    I donated $350 which will also result in delivery to me of a 3.1" cast bronze copy of the statute. Might even glue the statue to the front of the hood LOL. Nikola Tesla deserves to have a statute in Palo Alto!

    Oh, I thought we were already talking of a statue for Elon Musk (or, "St. Elon of Palo Alto" as one John Petersen labeled him) :tongue:

    I think the statue is few blocks from the Cal Ave./El Camino Real intersection and close to the Palo Alto Courthouse, not too far from the Page Mill underpass under Alma.
