Fort Payne, Alabama: Lirpa Anad NitsudThe scrap metal emissary with the unusual name waits for guidance along the road to Desoto State Park. Has vanished and reappeared over the years. Built by Ekim Snaggog. Reverse the letters of all the odd words, and it becomes a little more clear.
- CR 89, Fort Payne, AL
- From Hwy. 35. Take County Road 89/DeSoto Pkwy NE until you reach the caution light at Fisher Crossroads. Go through the light and Lirpa Anad Nitsud is across the street from the Shell station.
Visitor Tips and News About Lirpa Anad Nitsud
The sign below the robot says Lirpa Anad Nitsud, which spelled backwards is Dustin, Dana, and April (maybe the artists' names?)[Zeus, 04/09/2012]
Or the names of the artist's children...and that's their terrifying cybernetic nanny.
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.[P.A. Baker, 07/21/2011]
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.[Tony Lowros, 11/23/2000]
