Surrounding the Carhenge roadside attraction in Alliance, Nebraska (a replica of England’s Stonehenge made from cars) are some other interesting works of art that have been added throughout the years. The Carhenge artwork ranges from sculptures of fish to sculptures or dinosaurs…to even more sculptures made from cars! Check out these works of art…
The Spawning Salmon Created by Geoff Sandhurst of Canada
This giant metal salmon fish can be seen springing from the ground.
A big metal sculpture of a skeletal dinosaur.
The Fourd Seasons
Each car in “The Fourd Seasons” represents one of the four stages of wheat grown in the area: the “spring” car is green, the “mature” car is yellow mature, the “late summer/after harvest” car is pink, and the “winter” car is white.
A nearby white car covered in graffiti.
Says the plaque: “Here lie the bodies of foreign cars. They served their purpose while Detroit slept. Now Detroit is awake and America is great!”
