Seven-Foot Head Found Mysteriously Floating Down Hudson River

floating headSpring brings strange things. The New York Post reports:

The men’s crew team at an upstate New York college found the unusual object floating in the Hudson River. Officials at Marist College in Poughkeepsie say the team was practicing earlier this week when the coach spotted a large object floating near the river’s west bank. He hooked a rope to it and towed it to the team’s dock on the east bank.

The object turned out to be a 7-foot-tall replica of a man’s head made with Styrofoam and fiberglass. The head has the appearance of a Greek or Roman-style statue. So far no one has come forward to claim the giant head.

      sometimes when you behead a demonically-animated statue with a meteorite keris, they revert back to their original statue material. i’m saying this from exp.

        I suppose, when you use the legendary ax Pyr Grell; they just burn to ash.
