Places in Austin vanish with frequency, but when a classic artwork by a legendary Texas artist does, it seems like an even greater loss. Can you identify the artist of the sculpture pictured above, and its location? (Hint: It hasn’t really vanished forever, but it’s been hidden from view for a good long while.) Bonus question: What’s the name of the rising tower that the snake is hissing at? ♣
