The Statuary on Interstate-35 in Eddy, Texas is a sight that's hard to miss. Kevin and Esther Barker started their statuary business 17 years ago, and the store is now filled with more than five thousand tons of all things concrete.
The owners said their Statuary has become a tourist attraction, as well.
"They come and they look around and take a lot of pictures," Kevin said.
Kevin and Esther have created many unique statues over the years, including statues of Sasquatch, hippos and giant chickens.
"In 17 years you'd think you'd seen it all and heard it all, but there's always something new everyday," Esther said.
After nearly two decades of building their business, the two still enjoy their unique job.
"I just kind of fell into it, and you kind of get concrete in your blood," Esther said.
