This black and white photographic postcard features an attraction in Lucas, Kansas. This postcard reflects one of the sculptures in the Garden of Eden. Titled "Cain and His Wife", two sculptures are standing side by side in a tree above the fence. The sculpture on the left wears pants and has farming tools and the sculpture on the right represents Cain's wife. Cain has a cross in his forehead and is holding this wife by the wrist. The woman is carrying bags and wearing a skirt. Dinsmoor's house is in the background. There is handwriting in the bottom of the card.
