Very interesting piece of art. It is in the middle of the road, and we didn't realize what it was a first.

Very cool to look at, but not the easiest to get a photo op. To pull over, you would have to walk back to it, but not far. If you have a passenger in the car, that might be much easier. I was very entertained by the back story on this piece. I live in Tulsa and didn't know anything about it until I saw it on Roadside America.
