Mark Cline's creations are so scary, they even frighten him!
Mark Cline's creations are so scary, they even frighten him!

Creator of monsters and dinosaurs, haunted houses and Foamhenge, Mark Cline is more than the "oddball artist" characterized in an article in the Roanoke Times. I suspect it doesn't bother him to be called that, as long as it brings more people to Natural Bridge, Virginia to see his attractions. I first met Mark in 2004, when I learned that he is also a skilled craftsman, storyteller, actor (a ham actor, perhaps, but quite entertaining), street magician, and more. His humor, which pervades all his work, has a charming tongue-in-cheek quality, sometimes in questionable taste, with a little irony thrown in. This is precisely the definition of a tacky treasure.

Mark is also responsible for erecting life-size elephants and the famous Carthaginian general, Hannibal in Waynesboro, Virginia. See: Hannibal Crossing the Blue Ridge Mountains
