For me, Salvation Mountain is in two parts. There is the “mountain” and then there is the museum. The Museum is currently unfinished.
To the left of the museum entrance is the hogan. Like the rest of the mountain the inside of the hogan is decorated with house paint designs and bible verses. Also, there are several trophies. The trophies are for Leonard’s cars. They have been entered into art car shows.
Next to the hogan is another room. It’s much more visually quiet. It feels very ancient.
This is another shot of the exterior of the museum. I liked all the little windows.
Inside the museum is this old recliner. It looks like the one in my living room.
Leonard calls these pillars “trees”. They support the ceiling or what there is of it.
The museum will have a domed ceiling when finished.
The Folk Art Society of American has made Salvation Mountain a National Folk Art Site.
