It is somewhat likely that the second is a copycat and the creators of the first one have nothing to do with it.

I'm guessing viral marketing for a movie of some sort.

It was kind of disappointing to read the Redditt thread where some people described it as hollow cardboard with a metallic paint.

My theory has been that it is Nathan Fielder's work since I first saw it. Big budget, very random, no explanation. It's like a pig rescuing a goat.

Was the first one solid metal or hollow like these other two?

The first one was hollow, it was three aluminum panels riveted together with a top piece added

It'll be interesting to see if whoever is doing this reveals themselves. The Utah government messaging seemed to imply they would probably fine/charge whoever did it since it was on public land without authorization.

I would assume the first one was a legit artwork as it's been there for a number of years without any announcements and that the recent ones are just copycats.
