For weeks we have gotten emails as well as walk-ins to our showroom. Everyone asks if the large head on display outside our building was the one found in the Hudson River a few years ago. It’s NOT the same head… but I must admit there is a family resemblance. We did a bit of research and thought it would be interesting to reprint this story.
“Marist College team finds giant fiberglass-covered head in Hudson River.
This was a bizarre discovery, even for the Hudson River. The crew team from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., came across a large fiberglass-covered head in the Hudson’s chilly waters on Monday. Crew coach Matt Lavin approached it with caution before his team carefully towed the mysterious head to shore. “They pulled it in and it’s some kind of Styrofoam core with a fiberglass shell over it,” Marist director of public affairs Greg Cannon told ABC News… “Enough of the foam was exposed that it got water logged. It had gotten pretty heavy. Members of the team helped drag it up onto the dock.” No one knows where the head came from.”
