Ken Fox has an indescribable passion in building tall statues. The biggest of all the monuments stands 42-feet tall and weighs more than 120 tons. His collections spans from Amazon archers, to a man pushing a wheelbarrow, and naked man tied in steel chains. Though the figures are such a public attention, Fox maintained them unadvertised.

Fox began building the statues has his political statements in the 1960s when the height of industrial revolution was at its peak. At first, his endeavor was criticized by the local residents, but as years pass by, the townsfolk saw it as assets to local tourism.

Among the most famous statues is an Asian man in cone-shaped hat pushing a wheelbarrow. Fox named it the Chinese Coolie. He is also an advocate of feminism and as a tribute to the female form, he constructed the Freedom of Prayer, a naked young lady kneeling with her arms raised upwards.

Fox has always been proud that his statues are solid concretes just like the highways.
