It’s Saturday, May 16, 2009 at BUC. I had to come in to clean up and do some set up since we had such a busy morning here at the church. It just felt so alive, it made me want to share with you a Saturday morning here at BUC.

We stopped by to take a small video of it. Unfortunately, we had a horrible homeless person swearing at us most of the time. PRO TIP: You might want to visit in the day, or, stay in your car lol.

Ram-Headed Southern Storyteller
Address: 20th St. S., Birmingham, AL
Directions: 5 Points. 11th Avenue, 20th St. S and Magnolia S.

——

Some folks look at Frank Fleming’s “The Storyteller” sculpture and only see a human body with the head of a goat. To be fair, you don’t normally find something like “ram-man” (as he’s known) on public art in the Deep South — unless you’re looking at one of Fleming’s other sculptures.

Is it godless New York liberal culture in Birmingham? Is it an after-midnight rendezvous for red-eyed pagans? Are the five frogs listening to goat-guy really arranged at the points of a satanic pentagram?

Ram head.
Well, no. Fleming (1940-2018) was an Alabama native. He sculpted animals because of Southern and older storytelling traditions employing smarty-pants creatures (think Br’er Rabbit), and because he wanted to convey the idea of storytelling as a “peaceable kingdom.” He also wanted the sculpture to interest children.

The Storyteller sits on a stump, reading to his animal pals from an open book, holding a tall staff topped with an owl. The audience animals sit on circular platforms, a hare rides on the back of a tortoise. Five frogs spit water arcs crisscrossing the fountain.

It’s in front of a Methodist church, where we’d expect a Christ counseling his flock rather than Ram-Man. But the sculpture’s satanic connection is an urban legend. The only hellish thing we noticed is its location — in the heart of Birmingham’s busy Five Points district, which meant we had to park several blocks away in order to walk to see the sculpture.

Heaviest Corner on Earth – VIDEO TOUR (Birmingham, Alabama)

Taking a look at the “Heaviest Corner on Earth” in Birmingham, AL 🙂

The Heaviest Corner on Earth is a promotional name given to the corner of 20th Street and 1st Avenue North in Birmingham, Alabama, United States, in the early 20th century.

In the early 1900s, four of the South’s tallest buildings were constructed at 20th Street and First Avenue in downtown Birmingham. A magazine proclaimed it “The Heaviest Corner on Earth.” A marker at the site reads: “At the turn of the 20th century, Birmingham was a small town of two and three story buildings with a few church steeples punctuating the skyline. During the industrial boom from 1902 to 1912 which made Birmingham the largest city in the state, four large buildings were constructed at the intersection of the city’s main streets. The Woodward Building (now National Bank of Commerce), constructed in 1902 on the southwest corner, was the city’s first steel-frame skyscraper. A good example of the Chicago school style of architecture, it brought a dramatic change to the vertical scale of the existing Victorian city. In 1906 the 16-story Brown Marx Building rose on the northeast corner; in 1908 an addition more than doubled its size. Long the South’s largest office building, its principal tenant was United States Steel Corporation. The Empire Building (1909, northwest corner) and John A. Hand Building (1912, southeast corner) completed the ‘Heaviest Corner.’ Sheathed in marble, limestone, and terra cotta, they exemplify the more ornamental neoclassical style. Along the cornice of the Empire Building (now Colonial Bank), ‘E’s’ stand for the Empire Improvement Company, which built the tower. At the time, the height and mass of the buildings was so impressive that the intersection of First Avenue North and 20th Street was proclaimed the heaviest corner on earth. Today these buildings represent the most significant group of early skyscrapers in the city.”
