Fort Payne, Alabama: Lirpa Anad Nitsud

The scrap metal emissary with the unusual name waits for guidance along the road to Desoto State Park. Has vanished and reappeared over the years. A recent sign revelation changed his name from Zirpa to Lirpa Anad Nitsud....

Directions:
From Hwy. 35. Take County Road 89/DeSoto Pkwy NE until you reach the caution light at Fisher Crossroads. Go through the light and Zirpa Anad Nitsurd is across the street from the Shell station.

Lirpa Anad Nitsud. Lirpa Anad Nitsud - Scrap Robot

The sign below the robot says Lirpa Anad Nitsud, which spelled backwards is Dustin, Dana, and April (maybe the artists' names?)

Or the names of the artist's children...and that's their terrifying cybernetic nanny.

Zirpa Anad Nitsurd Lirpa Anad Nitsud

We were in Fort Payne over the weekend and I got to see this sculpture, Zirpa Anad Nitsurd. It is still on County Road 89 (like you're going to DeSoto State Park). It's next to an old building that has a sign saying "The Barnyard." We thought it was pretty cool.

Robot sculpture. Zirpa Anad Nitsurd

A very interesting collection of metal. Breastplates are Ford and DeSoto hubcaps, very good assortment of automotive parts and household appliances. Sign says; My name is "Zirpa Anad Nitsurd". Created by Mike Goggens, 1999.
