Owner: City of Leawood
Artist: David Phelps
Dates: Dedicated October 27, 2005
The artist, inspired by his childhood years on his family's farm, has created a larger-than-life size man, he is 17 feet long, laying back and relaxing after a hard day's work. The man has removed his shoes and has his eyes closed, perhaps asleep and dreaming. The sculpture gives the illusion that the man is partially submerged in the earth.
