Forkland's Tin Man

Thursday, February 10, 2011

The first time I ever visited Jim Bird's fields on Highway 43 in Forkland, I was taken with the hay creatures.  But really, it's the (32' tall) tin man I'm in love with.  We were there again in January:

These are pics from previous visits of what he's done with hay bales:

He actually didn't set out to make art, but when his baler started producing oddly-shaped bales...

He's also done a sculpture in York, Alabama:
