Each of these busts is 20 feet tall and weighs up to 20,000 pounds. So how did they end up in this rural Virginia field?
A neglected field in Croaker, Virginia, is the site of a modern-day Eastern Island, not made up of stone Fiji gods, but 20-foot-tall Presidential busts, each one weighing between 11,000 and 20,000 pounds. There are 43 of them—they were created before President Obama’s election—all in varying states of disrepair. Noses cracked off. Skulls caved in. Faces peeling off.
