Giant Concrete Legs

I had the pleasure of meeting Ricky Pearce, the artist. We chatted for a while. The process is called Earth Casting, in which the shapes are dug out of the ground to create the mold for the concrete pours. The original inspiration for the legs was Marilyn Monroe. The gold rod iron entrance is a reference to the old colloquial saying of she must have a gold p***y. Under the letter N a subtle stylized anatomically correct item can be seen. Ricky was an incredibly kind individual and I look forward to visiting him again. He has other pieces of various subjects all across the continental United States, however this is literally the entryway to his home.

Wonderful. The kitsch here is largely unparalleled. Especially poignant are the large bush(es) at the rear of the sculpture, opposite the gate.

I scooted to Henderson this weekend to get a glimpse of the gargantuan gams created by Ricky Pearce. According to local news reports, the legs aren't exactly loved by all his neighbors. In the vicinity you'll also find a pair of high-heeled shoes that Ricky couldn't get to fit properly on the legs.
