Hank Waddell's Licks utilized reclaimed wood, painted with dazzlingly bright automotive paint and mounted on steel tubing, to create a series of eye-catching larger-than-life sculptures, each unique in shape and contortion. The sculptures were then placed around and among the giant palms of GSD&M’s lawn, the fluid lines of the sculptures interacting with the surrounding environment, mimicking the trees as they swayed in the wind.
