Rock lizards.

Hand Mail Box and Rock Lizard

It's a hand holding a mailbox...and a rock lizard.

The property is for sale, so not sure how much longer the hand and the rock lizards will remain. Cool mailbox post!

[Lianne Griffin, 07/06/2014]

Property-enhancing features that could survive a sale... is that wishful thinking?

Big hand mailbox.

Hand Mail Box and Rock Lizard

A large hand (approximately 5 feet tall) with long fingernails holds a mail box. The Rock Lizard sculpture sits in an open field right next to the hand mailbox. It is about 8 feet tall at its highest point. Behind the sculpture, on the ground is a flat stone with the name of the artist: "Paul Carroll, 1990." And there's another lizard, slightly smaller.

Two large abacuses made of metal and rocks stand side by side behind the two large lizards, also made of metal and rocks.
