It is common in Greek and Roman archeological sites to come across heads, arms and fingers of ancient statues, but stumbling upon a giant head, that looks like it came from a statue of Caesar, in the middle of the Hudson River in New York is ANYTHING but normal...

According to Discovery News, crew team from Marist Collage was rowing on the river on Friday, April 26 when their coach noticed something bobbing in the water. Upon closer inspection, he discovered that it was an enormous 7-foot-high, fiberglass and Styrofoam head! It took 10 rowers to pull the waterlogged head out of the river and on to the dock.

he craziest part? No one has claimed the head and its origin is still a mystery!
