Dustin Rand of Reno owns Safari Rockeries. He considers himself a driven artist and a rock whisperer. And his latest creation is all the buzz.
If you have driven along Mill Street in Reno lately it's hard to miss. It's stands more than two stories tall and is growing in detail.
"Every day I seem to think it has enough detail," he says. "Then when I see it again I think of more things to add. I didn't know it was going to have feet but then there were two boulders there in just the right spots and we started carving the feet. And I keep adding more detail to the mane."
Rand will use this one as a display piece. But he's building three more and hopes to sell them for enough money to start an art school and teach others how to do what he does.
He also hopes that his creations will draw tourists to the area and fill up our hotels and casinos. He says the artwork has changed his life and he wants to give back to the community.
You can see his work at the corner of Mill Street and Telegraph.
