There was a descanso adjacent to a guardrail over a small ravine. it was composed of a cross and flowers, and there were a number of beer bottles stacked around the base. Either revelers thought it was clever to place their bottles around the cross, or this was an indication that the driver had an alcohol problem which contributed to his death. I thought it was a strong symbol against driving while intoxicated. The painting is composed of a wooden cross and a guardrail fragment made from a wood post and metal roofing material. There is a cross covered with bottle caps, and the flowers are made from aluminum beer cans.
