Nine figurative steel sculptures, weighing 7 tons each and standing 30‰Û_ tall, embody the faithful. In their various poses of worship from around the world, they bow down and reach forth to the Revered Oil Derrick, that icon of the religion which now stands above all others. The Derrick is a 90‰Û_ tall wooden tower with stairs all the way to the sky.
