Salvation Mountain

This is a folk art installation in Niland, CA.  Leonard Knight created this incredible installation using adobe clay mixed with straw to hold it all together.  He reinforces the clay with coats of paint and estimates that there are over 100,000 gallons of paint on the mountain!  Read about this very interesting artist and his artwork or see more incredible photos here.










 Found these incredible photos on Earth Age blog.

  3. Some aspects of life are like dominoes when one falls , all goes down ... at the end they all go into same place but its upon us to keep it neatly and safe or just messy all over
