An uber-creative modern public art installation, which stands along Route 66 west of Amarillo, invented and built by a group of San Fran art-hippies who had self-dubbed themselves The Ant Farm and backed up by their silent partner Amarillo billionaire Stanley Marsh III, includes an original installation of 10 Caddies half-buried, nose-down at the same angle as the Great Pyramid of Giza and which to this day, continues to provide a visceral experience with its wealth of graffiti and public adoration.
