Legs. Giant Concrete Legs

Wonderful. The kitsch here is largely unparalleled. Especially poignant are the large bush(es) at the rear of the sculpture, opposite the gate.

Pair of Legs entrance. Giant Concrete Legs

I scooted to Henderson this weekend to get a glimpse of the gargantuan gams created by Ricky Pearce. According to local news reports, the legs aren't exactly loved by all his neighbors. In the vicinity you'll also find a pair of high-heeled shoes that Ricky couldn't get to fit properly on the legs.

Pair of Legs entrance. Great Pair Of Legs

As I was driving through Henderson, North Carolina several months ago, I took a turn onto Welcome Avenue. I came upon the most unusual pair of legs I had ever seen. The legs appear to be made out of concrete that has been tinted to resemble a natural skin tone. They are awesome! Not only did the artist erect a beautiful pair of woman's legs, but he also incorporated a theme into the surrounding area. He constructed an arch from iron with the word "Reminiscing," which acts as the entrance to a boardwalk beneath one of the legs. There is also a garter fashioned into the thigh of the right leg and a bracelet fashioned into the ankle of the left leg.

[Tammy Pearce, 08/01/2004]

The artist is Ricky Pearce, a backhoe contractor. The legs are 17 ft. high and weigh 40-tons.
