West Burlington, Iowa: Enormous Human Spine (Gone)

A replica of a Goliath-size human spinal column stands behind a chiropractic clinic, hopefully not in need of adjustment. July 2017: spine gone; victim of the elements, or poor posture?

Enormous Human Spine

Nothing special, my daughter wouldn't even leave the car to come see it.

Spine carved from tree trunk.

Enormous Human Spine

The spine is right behind Rexroth Chiropractic. My wife and I wandered around back, and she was the first to figure out what it was. The spine is carved out of an old tree. Painted white, it's a pretty good approximation of a spine.

We passed by again that night on the way out of town; it is indeed lit up.

Enormous Human Spine

This enormous replica of a human skeleton sits proudly along Highway 34 in Burlington, Iowa. The spine is lit at night so you can see it from the road.

We'd love to have photo confirmation of this!
