Woodward, Oklahoma: Kid Rides Creationist Dinosaur

Stegosaurus with child riding its back -- some say it depicts boy Jesus. A sign explains, "A Dinosaur like this roamed the Earth 5,000 years ago" (not 150 million years ago). Erected by Randall Gabrel, headmaster of Woodward Christian Academy, who also owns an oil company.

Stegosaurus Creationist Sculpture

Statuary proof that stegosaurs roamed the Earth 5,000 years ago with humans. Sadly, the adult stegosaurus (probably ridden by humans, too) didn't make it onto Noah's Ark, but the baby one might have, according to the informative signs. Tourists are encouraged to ride the baby stegosaurus statue. There is also a giant Ten Commandments. Next door to a Christian bookstore, at the corner of 11th street and Oklahoma Avenue.
