Overview

In ancient mythology, Vulcan was ugly.  So ugly, that he was kicked out of his home on Mount Olympus and forced to become a blacksmith among the common people with a volcano as his forge.  But he eventually married Venus, the goddess of Love and Beauty, so either he wasn’t really that ugly or he just had a really good sense of humor. Today, the god stands as the tallest cast iron statue in the world in the center of Birmingham’s Vulcan Park and Museum, which features educational tours and a soaring observation deck overlooking the city.
