Leonard Knight

For three years, Knight built his testament to God and Jesus out of watered-down cement and sand, until one day when it literally exploded in a cloud of dust. Knight began to rebuild Salvation mountain, this time using adobe clay, which he has continued to work on to this day. Currently, he lives in a donated truck converted into a house near the base of the mountain and spends his days maintaining it and building the adjacent "Museum," an enormous dome of straw bales, adobe, auto glass, wood and paint.
