This waymark focuses a turkey located amongst five human-based sculptures and one flower. It is located against a structure, fifty feet from the front entrance, the last work of art before access is restricted (this is where the automobiles are kept). The turkey is to the right of the dirt road which leads to the back. The turkey is one of two, this being the smallest. The turkey is poised for action, bent over in attack formation. It is colored red, blue and a little white. It is composed of gears, fan blades broken off and used for feathers and other parts of what I know not.

As for the rest of the sculpture garden, there is a fantastic collection of auto part sculptures located in the front. This is one of three junk yards mentioned on the Roadside Attractions website (which is how I discovered this), this one being the most impressive and prolific. The sculptures range from large to small, some are isolated and some are in groups. Most are people based but a few are insects, plants and one large angry dog which frightened me!

The folks running the counter gave me permission to walk around and snap photos. The people in the office wanted to make very clear that these sculptures are the furthest one can go. Anything further back is off-limits for insurance reasons and you are asked to not go back there. They also told me the person who made these used to work here but has been gone for a long time.
