87 feet (26.5 m) tall sculpture that was created by the Swedish artist Karl Momen in the 1980s and dedicated in 1986. It is located in the desolate Great Salt Lake Desert of Utah on the north side of I-80 about 25 miles east of Wendover, Utah. The sculpture, which is constructed mainly of concrete, consists of a squarish 'trunk' holding up six spheres that are coated with natural rock and minerals native to Utah. There are also several hollow sphere segments on the ground around the base. The sculpture is also sometimes called the Tree of Life and was visited by the contestants on the The Amazing Race: Family Edition in 2005.
