VULCAN, the world's Largest Cast Iron Statue, stands atop Red Mountain, overlooking Downtown Birmingham (shown) and the over the mountain area of Homewood. Vulcan was recently taken down for an extensive refurbishing, and when replaced he was rotated slightly on his pedestal so that he no longer mooned Homewood. Vulcan is the Roman god of the forge, a fitting symbol of Birmingham's past iron and steel industry. He has stood watch over Birmingham for 100+ years.
