Spine key chain.

Spinal Column Carved From Tree

We were rewarded for stopping with a neat key chain! Dr. Ryan ran out and gave it to us himself; he says he always tries to have one ready when he sees people stopping to take photos.

Spine parking lines.

Spinal Column Carved From a Tree

Cool carving is in front of the Columbus Chiropractic Center, and stands as a salute to all of us with a spine. The chiropractor keeps this art painted a bright white and decorates it for the holidays.

In addition to the pole, check out the spinal lines separating the parking spaces!

Snoopy rides the spine.

Giant Spine Christmas decor

A dog named "Snoopy" is riding his dog house and holding his little pal "Woodstock." This Christmas decoration will be on display until 1/10/2012 (Maybe longer if it get's frozen up there). A giant "chainsaw" carved spine sculpture is the masterpiece that is located as a local visible highlight of the central Ohio area.

Halloween Spine Spiders.

Giant Spine

For Halloween, giant eight foot Spiders were climbing up the Giant Spine. They appeared poised and ready to pounce onto any would-be neurosurgeon looking for a quick cut lamenectomy. A fresh paint job and a new "flashing" disc herniation added to the roadside attraction.

Turkey nest on the spine.

Spine - Turkey Nest

A turkey nest is present on the top of the Giant Spine. You haven't ever seen a turkey's nest? Well they only nest on top of a Giant Spine, so you need one to go with the other! At least that is what I have told my patients.

It is just a way to make the people laugh when they drive by. For Halloween we had giant spiders climbing up the spine. For Christmas...well, just come and see.
