Giant Concrete Legs

I grew up in Henderson and these make me laugh every time I see them. You gotta love a good sense of humor these days...and this guy has it.

Legs.

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.
