The imposing BIG STATUE of Muddy Monster is an impressive bronze sculpture that towers at 7 feet in height. Custom-designed, meticulously developed, and expertly crafted in Salt Lake City, UT, this monumental artwork found its permanent home in Murphysboro, IL.
Nestled in the heart of Southern Illinois’ coal country and gracing the banks of the Big Muddy River, Murphysboro is renowned for its natural beauty, fishing havens, and local wineries. However, it’s also famous for harboring a legendary resident—the Big Muddy Monster, also known as the Murphysboro Mud Monster, which sent shockwaves through the local community in the early 1970s, firmly placing Murphysboro on the map for North American cryptid enthusiasts.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to Murphysboro for welcoming us at STATUES.COM into the fold of this iconic figure’s legacy
