Dinosaur, Canadian, 1998

Needless to say, to drive through West Texas and encounter this scene after turning a corner comes as a surprise. The dinosaur is the creation of B. G. Cockrell, who built it to commemorate the birth of his grandchild. Mr. Cockrell has an amazing home full of concrete yard art that he has produced. The photos that follow document some of the artworks: "B. G. Cockrell Yard Art: Dinosaur and Crucifix," "B. G. Cockrell Yard Art: Lamb and Lion," and "B. G. Cockrell Yard Art: Crucifix."
