Rita the Rock Planter

Viktor, Colorado, USA



Commissioned by Gold Camp District Impact Group.

"A hundred suns is how long a nap takes for the trolls
When Rita woke again, her mountainside was full of holes
The humans must have dug them in their search for shiny rock
But someone could fall in, so Rita went to tidy up

I built Rita on a mountain top where they used to dig for gold in Victor, Colorado. After the humans mined for gold, they left many holes in the ground. Rita wanted to make sure no one fell in a hole, so she decided to put the rocks back in.
