406024 23: (FEATURE STORY- SALVATION MOUNTAIN- 23 OF 23) The word "love" expresses Leonard Knight's dedication to Jesus on a trailor near Salvation Mountain May 30, 2002 near Niland, CA, east of the Salton Sea. 70-year-old Leonard Knight has been painting and repainting Biblical messages on Salvation Mountain for 17 years, using an estimated 100,000 gallons of donated paint. The state once tried to declare it a hazardous waste site and have it destroyed but Knight prevailed and it now attracts the attention of journalists and folk art lovers worldwide. The Folk Art Society of America has declared 100 foot-wide, three-story tall painted hill a national folk art shrine and a leading folk arts scholar is petitioning Congress to recognize Salvation Mountain as a national treasure for permanent protection.
