      Where in the Nevada Desert can I see this statue?

      I found the answer: In the 1970s a group of eccentrics attempted to form an art colony a few miles south of Rhyolite (a ghost town in Nye County, east of Death Valley near Beatty, Nevada); and in the early 80s a group of Belgium artists built an open air "art situation" consisting of several large sculptures -- the Goodwell Open Air Museum. The sculptures include a 25-foot cinder block sculpture of a naked woman -- "Lady Desert: The Venus of Nevada" (1992) by Dr. Hugo Heyrman.

      Like Rhyolite, the sculpture yard seems to be completely abandoned, with no sign of life or markings indicating what is going on or who is in charge, but apparently a non-profit group is trying to raise funds to restore it all.

      I think she is wearing a thong. Hope she used sunscreen.
