"4, 5, 6 Saguaro" is a vertical piece featuring a colorful, stylized representation of a cactus against a night sky dotted with stars. The cactus is composed of numerous license plate fragments. Each segment of the cactus shows different colors, patterns, numbers, and letters, indicative of the diverse designs commonly found on license plates. The cactus extends upwards, creating three distinct arms. The background displays a contrast between the speckled, dark blue sky above and a warm, orange-hued desert landscape at the bottom, providing a desert night scene setting for the cactus. The use of real-life objects creates an interesting texture and a sense of depth in the piece, while also offering a playful take on a familiar natural subject.
