Visitor Tips and News About Strange Sculpture - Procession to Hell
They've taken away the crumbling statues (or repaired, I can't tell) and left the ones that are whole. I brought a couple statues of my own for a visit and to take a picture.[Debbie, 10/29/2013]
Looks like a full count so they must've repaired them.
Sculpture still there, although some bow ties are knocked sideways or are missing altogether. Traffic too heavy to stop for a picture, but statues were temporarily and startlingly dwarfed by a two-story tall air filled bird further back on the premises. It was half deflated and there was no obvious explanation for it.[Kitsa, 05/26/2013]
March 18, 2012 - the Hellbound were not in the track of the Ides of March Dexter tornado, so they escaped unscathed (or no further scathed). They are, however, currently sporting jaunty red bow ties.
The Mager complex has No Trespassing signs at the parking lot entrances. Unsure how strongly this is enforced. An exiting truck driver did not stop and yell about my car parked in the streetside corner, but I didn't linger.[JJ, 03/18/2012]
Interesting statue, can't help but be curious about its origins.[NicholausLee, 10/16/2010]
The statues are arranged pointing to a small cemetery in the wooded area next to the largest one. Made of what looks like fiberglass, they encountered damage several years ago as vandals or a car accident knocked them over. They now stand righted, but remain damaged.[Dave, 01/21/2010]
