Google has a new Android statue on its Mountain View campus.

Android Community Manager Paul Wilcox posted a photo on Google+ of the chrome-coated statue this morning that looks as though it is waiving to folks from Building 45’s entryway.

Google typically installs statues opposite of the lawn, as The Verge also noted, when a new version of Android debuts. The color of the statue, however, seems to suggest an upcoming blend of both Google’s Android and Chrome operating systems. Wilcox dashed any hopes of a new version of Android in his Google+ post, though.

“To be clear, this post is a little tongue-in-cheek and is not meant to be a sneaky announcement of a new version of Android,” he said. “It is, however, an announcement of a new statue.”

UPDATE: Google Android Support Partner Adam Wilson posted a new photo (below) on Friday of the statue all lit up:
