Titanium, 22, Thousand Island High School, New York USA Titanium: The Titanium man has muscles to show that titanium is strong. He is wearing a jersey with titanium's atomic number. His face is that of William George Gregor because he discovered titanium in Cornwall, United Kingdom in 1791. The Titanium man is holding the Earth to symbolize that titanium is the ninth most abundant element in Earth's crust. Four meteors are pictured because titanium is present in meteors, and has four valence electrons. There are clouds with titanium's symbol, Ti.
