Stumbled on this scene outside Batesville, in northern Mississippi. Batesville, you probably already know is the namesake and home of the Batesville Casket Company, America’s largest coffin producer– for more than 100 years! I’ve seen their delivery trucks across the USA. Sadly, they don’t offer factory tours– I asked.
This inspiring piece of sculpture is found on old US 278 between Tupelo (Elvis’ birthplace) and Clarksdale, MS (Clapton’s ‘Crossroads’), two notable towns located in the AMERICANA MUSIC TRIANGLE. http://americanamusictriangle.com/driving-trails/ — bet you didn’t know about that either!
