The Gate, Fence and Hollow Tree Shelter Designed by Dionicio Rodriguez is a work by noted artist Dionicio Rodriguez that is located at 320 Oak St. in Clayton, New Mexico. It consists of three faux bois sculptures created in 1943.[1] Speculator Bayliss C. Froman commissioned the sculptures on his property after seeing Rodriguez's work on a visit to San Antonio. The sculptures include a gate resembling the entrance to the San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden, an intertwining log fence, and a hollow tree with textured bark.[2]
