Happy Birthday, Walt Whitman!

Bizarre Planet of the Apes/Zardoz Walt Whitman headWe at Willceau Illo News celebrate the 200th anniversary of poet Walt Whitman’s birth with one of the stranger sculptures dedicated to the man. This bizarre Zardoz/Planet of the Apes head of Whitman adorns the entrance of the Whitman Shopping Plaza in South Philadelphia. Old Walt’s got a few statues around town and a bridge named after him, but this is the weirdest.
