Between 1907 and 1928, visionary artist Samuel Perry Dinsmoor personally constructed 150 outdoor concrete statues and a limestone home in Lucas, Kansas.  Dinsmoor was age 64 when the project started.  The entire collection of statues is named the Garden of Eden.  Statues of Adam and Eve adorn the entrance.
