Dexter, Michigan: Strange Sculpture: Procession to Hell (Gone)

A line of 16 crumbling fiberglass humanoids, of gradually diminishing size, stood on an otherwise normal field of grass. "La Raza" by Ronald Farrington Sharp stood for 30 years, and underwent various odd modifications, but was removed in April 2021.

Painted for Juneteenth 2020, with bonus Covid-19 mask wearer.

Strange Sculpture - Procession to Hell

The sculpture was repainted to honor Juneteenth. One figure wears a mask to prevent spreading COVID-19, even though they are not social distancing from the group.

Procession to catch trout?

Strange Sculpture - Procession to Hell

This lovely sculpture was actually heading towards a "go fishing" sign. It's a quick picture moment. We are glad we stopped. We also saw the shoe tree, Town of Hell and dined with Jesus. Go see all four.

Strange Sculpture - Procession to Hell

They've taken away the crumbling statues (or repaired, I can't tell) and left the ones that are whole. I brought a couple statues of my own for a visit and to take a picture.

Looks like a full count so they must've repaired them.

Strange Sculpture - Procession to Hell

Sculpture still there, although some bow ties are knocked sideways or are missing altogether. Traffic too heavy to stop for a picture, but statues were temporarily and startlingly dwarfed by a two-story tall air filled bird further back on the premises. It was half deflated and there was no obvious explanation for it.

Procession with Bow Ties.

Strange Sculpture - Procession to Hell

March 18, 2012 - the Hellbound were not in the track of the Ides of March Dexter tornado, so they escaped unscathed (or no further scathed). They are, however, currently sporting jaunty red bow ties.

The Mager complex has No Trespassing signs at the parking lot entrances. Unsure how strongly this is enforced. An exiting truck driver did not stop and yell about my car parked in the streetside corner, but I didn't linger.
