Secret Caverns Billboard: Vanquished Dragon

Cobleskill, New York

The masterpiece billboard, "Undefeated Champion of the Earth," trumpets in no uncertain terms that Secret Caverns' long battle is over. They have vanquished a Great Foe.

Billboard analysts (us) believe that the unnamed rival is perhaps another cave. An older, bigger, lumbering enemy -- shown at times as a dragon or dinosaur, an oversize reptile whose days are numbered. A subliminal reference to the Beast may be found by viewing the dragon's curious skin markings upside-down (not recommended while you're driving).

Marketing Note: While the "Gagging Tongue" and "X for Eyes" technique is frowned upon even in over-the-top caricature circles, it is perfectly acceptable in druggy outdoor messaging.
