Google Releases the Android 'N'!!!

At the Google headquarters, Googleplex, in Mountain View, Cailifornia, Google has released the well anticipated Android 'N' operating system Sweet!!!  Fans have voted and Google has listened!  With the public's help, we are proud to announce the NOUGAT  !!!  




Each year Android releases their new and improved OS and pairs it with a delicious sweet of their liking.  That's when they call us:
#Themendous aka "The King of HUGE" to create the sugary android!  For the past decade we have created countless droids and sweet sculptures that still stand at the Mountain View headquarters.  








The Google Sculptures have become so popular since the inception of Android in 2008 that today,
the  Sculpture Garden (also known as the Google Lawn Sculptures) has become a right of passage for all Googlers and visitors alike.   The Google Sculpture Garden is open to the public and is visited by thousands of people per year!  

Themendous creates oversized sculptures for marketing, entertainment, event, and signage needs of all kinds. We create pieces that are one of a kind and completely custom to your needs for both commercial or residential clients. 

Currently we are working on Season 2 of our Studio reality show:

Mother of Dragons and the Dragon of Maine


The Mother of Dragons, holds no power over our Themendous Oversized beast! This is the Mother of all Dragons! 


At a whopping 31 feet long and 19 feet tall, this dragon still holds its stance.
 If you are a fan of fantasy, Game of Thrones, and mystical creatures of all sizes, then you will love our favorite piece that inhabits the Fun Town Splash Town in Maine. He official secures our name as the King of Huge and we hold the throne!

After 15 years of all seasoned weather and salty Maine air, it was time to re-finish our sculpture.



Winter sure did come AND this piece was never covered....

After 15 years of Winter, he has gone undamaged and still stands strong.  Although extremely sound, he did require a new coat of paint!  The Dragon Queen ain't got nothing on us!




As you can see, the pigments of the paint eventually were overpowered by the intense sun.


But worry not, sculpting is our realm and we are the protectors!!!  The Themendous Crew took a short hike up to Maine to refinish the entire surface. He now looks good as new, 15 years later!
