Ex-Nihilo Sculpture Park Near Mt. Rainier National Park
Recycled Spirits of Iron Sculpture Park
"When you first glimpse Dan Klennert's Recycled Spirits of Iron Sculpture Park on your way to Mount Rainier National Park, you might just brake to a stop. And if you don't, we guarantee you will want to when the next opportunity arises.
Peering over the fence you may wonder, "What IS this place?" In Latin "Ex-Nihilo" translates to "something created from nothing." The park is a random collection of animals, monsters, motorcycle riders and structures - all wrought from the imagination and materials found by the artist.
Go ahead, drive in and allow plenty of time for your journey through Spirits of Iron. Klennert has worked for years to create this garden, though he'll tell you that making art seldom feels like work - days pass like hours when he's inspired." copied from: http://www.visitrainier.com/pg/sculpture_park/Ex-Nihilo-Sculpture-Park-Near-Mt-Rainier-National-Park
If you're ever going to Mt Rainier National Park, definitely stop in! Dan is a kick in the pants to talk to.
