  1. Perhaps an attempt to celebrate the welfare that corn has brought to the region? They are a bit bleak. If this were my land, I would rearrange the cobs and paint them like “Indian Corn” (and, for good measure, add some slides, swings, and a weekly farmers’ market)

    Perhaps it symbolizes how King Corn killed U.S. farming and food as we knew it? Nicola suggests it is the lost corn fields that are remembered here. Perhaps the statues represent the soulless stretches of uniform hybrid corn land that dominates the landscape of that region. We had a corn-factory, now its a field full of daisies.
