Old Man of the Mountain Bobblehead

SKU: 16507

New Hampshire’s long-time favorite symbol—the Old Man of the Mountain rock formation—fell off its rock face in Franconia Notch on May 3, 2003. The profile was formed from five granite ledges in a process that started some 200 million years ago. It was first reported by a surveying team, circa 1805, and grew in fame when Daniel Webster wrote of it “Men hang out their signs indicative of their respective trades; shoe makers hang out a gigantic shoe; jewelers a monster watch, and the dentist hangs out a gold tooth; but up in the Mountains of New Hampshire, God Almighty has hung out a sign to show that there He makes men.” Nathaniel Hawthorne used the Old Man as inspiration for his 1850 story called “The Great Stone Face,” calling it “a work of Nature in her mood of majestic playfulness.” The limited-edition bobblehead measures 5.5" high.
