Motorcycle hanging tree. Motorcycle Hanging Tree

Five motorcycles strung up in a tree. The owner of the property likes Harley Davidsons and the bikes hanging in the tree are "Jap" bikes.

[Harry Hunt, 05/10/2010]

April 2011: Tipster Ted White warns: ""This artistic expression tests our comfort levels with hate speech: when you hang something in Arkansas, it carries historic connotations of lynching murders and 'strange fruit;' hanging 'Jap' Bikes' seems to support a notion of Japanese inferiority, white supremacy, and legitimacy of lynching something you don't like all rolled together in one expression."
