Medus-Hay - Medusa Head Sculpture

Currently looks like a voodoo doll that has tipped over. Her hair is gone. But it is winter. Right before, was a figure of a Cowboy riding a hay bale in the back of a pick up truck.

Medusa Head Sculpture

Came across a sculpture that was a mix between a tree and a Medusa head. Oddly bizarre, but enough to make me turn around to take a closer look. Visible from a pullout for a historical marker about mining Sapphires.

Winner of Hobson's 2012 "What the Hay?" contest, the Medus-Hay has lasted longer than most of the creative hay bale sculptures in the annual competition. The festival happens on the Sunday following Labor Day.
