Photo gallery: Building bigfoot

David Auleman, 59, a Seymour-based artist, recently finished his Bigfoot creation after more than four years of work. It stands more than 9 feet tall and 90 percent is from recycled foam. Auleman said he usually does murals or airbrush work, but his daughter asked him to watch a TV show with her called “Finding Bigfoot” and afterward he thought it would be cool to make a Bigfoot. Auleman said the creation can be interpreted as either hunting or hiding.
