A bronze artistic representation of a four-man crew on a drilling rig.  The drilling rig is a 100 percent life-size sculpture cut off at approx. 34 feet in height.  The importance of the piece lies not in the equipment, but in the men who built the oil patch; therefore the four men in the crew are 125 percent life size.  The Derrick Floor was created by Vic Payne and dedicated in April 2004 “to the men and women who take the risks and do the work to find, produce and refine New Mexico oil and gas.”
