Knight Statue in Oneonta, NY

I was driving through Oneonta, NY and saw this odd statue of a giant knight in front of a used book store.

This knight appears to be about 12 feet tall and is wearing some sort of leather mask shaped like lips. Lets take a closer look at our leather-faced knight.

I guess there’s not much else to be said. If you know why this is here, how it got here, or why it’s wearing a leather-lip mask please leave a comment below and let us know!

    I run that bookstore; the knight is all aluminum, and is 18 feet tall. We bought him from a friend who had purchased a tractor trailer-full of knights of various sizes from Mexico.

  2. Thank you for the information!

    I’ve always said that Mexico does make the best large aluminum knights. 😉
