ROADSIDE ART -- HOLISTIC HOLLOW

The Entrance to Holistic HollowThis street sign along highway 270 west of Lake Hamilton reads "Holistic Hollow." Emerging from the earth right there next to it is this cement sculpture of a hand with all the thumb and fingertips drawn together.

I intended to drive down the road, knock on the door and ask the residents the usual questions about the sculpture, but while I was taking this snapshot I heard a vicious dog barking on the property. I ain't exactly Christiane Amanpour, so I got back in my car and moved along.

UPDATE

I got an email from a reader named Paul Reavis noting that the artist's name is Loren Impsen and the material is ferrocement. He also sent me the following related URL's:
