Security Device


This statue sits in the middle of a church parking lot completely surrounded by a thick growth of prickly-pear cactus. I wonder if the cactus was planted there to protect the statue. I doubt that anyone would attempt to run off with this statue on a dark night with this thorny security device in place.

Quite beautiful. No matter what we make, nature trumps us with her colors and variety.
