Gary Greff’s large scale sculpture

Incredible work. Incredible story.

“With zero experience welding or creating art, Gary Greff began building the world’s largest metal sculptures and placing them along the “Enchanted Highway,” or Highway 21 in Regent, North Dakota.

By 2006, Greff had completed a total of seven mammoth sculptures for the 32-mile stretch of road. All are thematically related to the western North Dakota’s cultural and historical roots. For instance, in one sculpture Teddy Roosevelt dominates the rolling hills, while in another, grasshoppers five times the size of a car feast on golden wheat rising from scoria rock beds.

  1. These are so magnificent!
    Somehow they resemble work of a Finnish artist Miina Äkkijyrkkä. Please, check them from Google by searching “miina äkkijyrkkä cows” and pictures there.
