Crystal Shrine Grotto

A unique cave was constructed by Memorial Park founder E. Clovis Hinds and Mexican artist Dionicio Rodriquez in 1935-38. Natural rock and quartz crystal collected from the Ozarks form the background for nine scenes from the life of Christ. The cave and environs were built of concrete in imitation of rocks, boulders and trees. This naturalistic art recreates links with history and literature.
