Atlas holds the world on his shoulders

This sculpture is part of the G&T Recycled Auto Parts on Gratiot Ave in Chesterfield Township. During the war of the Titans, Atlas stormed Olympus and threatened the gods. As punishment Zeus sentenced him to hold up the heavens and bear the weight on his shoulders forever. What a creative rendition from recycled auto parts! It was worth pulling the car over and snapping a photo.
