Long Description:
This is a Henry Harrison Mayes art piece made of concrete and is in the silhouette of a heart with the message that Jesus is coming soon. It's in very good condition except it needs repainted.

On one side it reads "Jesus is coming soon" and on the other "Prepare to meet GOD".

The marker is made of concrete and painted white with the recessed letters in black. The letters are about one inch deep.

According to my internet research, sometime around 1940, Mayes latched on to the idea of casting cement. He built a wooden mold and began pouring.

"The mold was in the form of a heart, 4 feet tall and 4 feet wide. The post supporting the heart was 6 feet high and 10 inches wide. Three additional feet were buried in the ground, making the one-piece heart 13 feet tall."
