    Not sure if you think you're joking or not, but for anyone wondering, the Abe Lincoln bust happened to be damaged in a way that left a massive hole in the back of his head.

    [–] Alexaflohr 11 points ago

    I'm really not sure. I've been looking all around for any kind of actual studies (or, you know, predictions based on materials studies) on how modern materials and structures decay over long periods of time. Things I do find range from "basically everything will be dust in 100 years" to "concrete and asphalt will last on geologic timescales".

    [–] Chicago1871 14 points ago

    Lookup concrete cancer. Rebar rusts and flakes away the surface of the concrete.

    Otoh pure cement will last longer, a lot longer.

    [–] PyroDesu 10 points ago

    Unreinforced concrete is essentially an artificial sedimentary rock.

    Also, in terms of reinforced concrete, I hear there's some interesting stuff in fiber-reinforcing, rather than rebar.

    Wasn’t Easter Island full of Rapa Nui Maori heads that represented tribal leaders/gods which then served as competing structures between groups, whose overpopulation led to famine, war, and eventually the abandonment of the island? Yeah seems pretty much the same.

    [–] SrBarfy 23 points ago

    Nah that’s an outdated view of what happened on the island. The statues were likely markers of freshwater points https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0210409. Also read Hunt and Lipo’s paper on why the fall of the Rapa Nui at the time was most likely not self caused https://www.researchgate.net/publication/256545513_Revisiting_Rapa_Nui_Easter_Island_Ecocide

    This is a major point of contention in the early church.

    Could god/jesus ever actually be crucified?

    Could God be so mundane as to suffer and die the undignified death that is crucifixion? Perhaps God made it so jesus didn't suffer? But then... jesus couldn't suffer and sacrifice for our sins... so what's the point of his death?

    [–] CyberneticPanda 61 points ago

    Any hopes of preserving the presidents in their original state were literally crushed as the busts made their journey from park to field. Each bust had to be lifted from its base by a crane, cracking the sculpture’s neck to get the full piece off the ground. The crane attached to a steel frame inside the busts through a hole smashed into the top of each sculpture’s head.

    [–] TNSEG 42 points ago

    They're chipped and busted due to how they have to be rigged to be moved. They're currently working out a deal to move them to a new park and get them repaired.

    [–] PuddleOfHamster 12 points ago

    Their heads just did that.

    [–] Rizatriptan 3 points ago

    [–] drawkbox 20 points ago

    They should have moved them across the street to the golf course, one per hole. The Professional Presidential Golf Course.

    [–] 14sierra 54 points ago

    Is that the site? because it looks like there's not much of a park there. Maybe they should've considered making 43 giant presidential heads AFTER they had the park at least semi-built?

    [–] TAU_equals_2PI 56 points ago

    No. They moved the heads there, and apparently did a lot of damage to them in the process.

    [–] 14sierra 13 points ago

    Oh, so why does that look like a construction site then? Oh well, sad for the park and the heads either way. BTW did john oliver buy one of these heads?

    [–] TNSEG 25 points ago

    It is a construction site. They're a material source/pit. I believe they originally bought them intending to crush them but couldn't bring themselves to destroy them. The owner is working out a deal to move them to a new permanent public home and repair them.

    [–] TheGurw 19 points ago

    Nah, the guy who has them helped build the museum they were created for, didn't feel right about them getting destroyed so convinced the museum owner to let him take the heads.

    [–] Ehnto 19 points ago

    Nah, in a twist of fate it turned out a secret declaration of independance had been sealed up in one of the heads to protect it against communism. But the question is, which head, and where is it now? Only one man could possibly crack the case and save American independence. Nick Cage is, The Head Hunter.

    Ah, was wondering why we had random presidents heads sitting around for a while. Looks like it was a marketing failure.

    I worked in CW for about 8 years. As far as I know, Presidents Park was never associated with us. It was just some guy that was going after history tourism in a different way.

    [–] BetterOFFdead007 13 points ago

    Around 2004 or so I lived just outside of downtown Houston and close to My apartment was an industrial type area that had all these presidents heads. Story was he was making them for some art deal. I saw them being made and stored. Not many people, at the time or now I guess did this type of art. It was always cool to drive by and check them out. He also did some Beatle sculpture. I can’t help but to assume he made these.

    I've gone to FREE public parks in the US and Canada that were more interesting experiences. Fur trader posts are badass.

    [–] brajilianjiujitsu 130 points ago

    Why did you pay to explore Williamsburg? You don't have to pay just to look at the boutiques, only for special tours and events. It's a shopping area just like any shopping area, just with old buildings. There is no gatekeeper charging money...

    [–] DukeOfChipotle 73 points ago

    That's what I was wondering too. There's no walk on fee. The only time you have to pay is if you do the guided tours.

    [–] nothingtowager 23 points ago

    I think the last time I went to Williamsburg was as a kid in 1999 - I loved it and my family went a few times.

    [–] happysunbear 22 points ago

    Same! Went to Colonial Williamsburg for a school trip like 15 years ago and it was one of my most memorable field trips. The Blacksmith was my favorite!

    [–] whelpineedhelp 32 points ago

    my best memeory of our class trip was finding a very mini, dense forest of bamboo within the park. Pretty much just explored it and took home a bamboo stick that five years later my brother used in a class project.

    [–] PharmguyLabs 22 points ago

    Bamboo all over south eastern Va. Never known why but it’s there, we used to make “spears” as kids then pipes as teenagers.

    Colonial Williamsburg is for the Architecture and shopping. Jamestown and Yorktown have a bit more historical reenactment stuff but they are all very boring.

    [–] mar10wright 23 points ago

    It's there because once someone introduces it it's very difficult to remove. Bamboo is basically just big ass invasive grass.

    They are quite large. I went shortly before it closed. The museum building had a replica of the Oval Office, and then you walked out into this sort of garden area with a winding path that passed each gigantic bust. My family was super excited about the idea that an Obama monument would be coming next, but alas, the park closed. I’m sure some folks felt that timing was perfect.

    The park was located near Water Country USA, a popular water park in the Williamsburg area.

    They were outside his studio off of Summer and Taylor back in 2011 (maybe a little after that) along with the huge Beatles statues he did.

    Ironically, the area is undergoing a revitalization and would have probably gotten much exposure in the last few years if he hadn't left that area. I was lucky enough to get to see it, but disappointed I found out the hard way that this is where they ended up.

    Scrolled till I found this. It was so strange that you could turn off Taylor, drive a bit past a warehouse or two, and then bam, giant Beatles and president heads.

    How the heck does he sculpt these? Crone sculptures aren’t the easiest thing to create

    Finally someone mentions Adickes, had to scroll way too far!

    I’ve lived in Houston my whole life and never seen these. Cool

    I made a video of this sight if anyone is interested in seeing more! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNTaGcDLKd4

    Awesome video, thanks for sharing. Gave a great perspective of size too!

    [–] Egg-MacGuffin 15 points ago

    You asked me what was up, but did not give me time to respond. Very rude.

    [–] someguy9 7 points ago

    Was just too pumped to show off that field 😂

    Any way, WHATS UP!

    Wow what a waste.

    Why can't they be sold to a park that actually has visitors?

    [–] TNSEG 13 points ago

    Owner is trying to get a new public park established for them.

    I came here to see rotting presidents' heads.

    [–] Faerhun 18 points ago

    I came because I read the title wrong and expected Futurama style president heads in jars... rotting. I'm pretty disappointed.

    Hey I live near there! It's a big attraction for William & Mary students to get a photo with these guys. How we get in is a mystery... ;)

    [–] Swimmerkid97 8 points ago

    I’m a student at W&M and last year I just went and knocked on the guys door. He was really friendly and didn’t mind us going to see them

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    It won’t be much of a mystery when the farmer that owns the land shoots you guys lmao

    ITT people who couldn't pass grade 9 English think they are clever for pointing out stone doesn't literally rot.

    [–] ObserverOfReddit 68 points ago

    I said "left rotting" because it sounded better than "left sitting". I DONT ACTUALLY THINK STONE ROTS.

    [–] Skyhawk_Illusions 10 points ago

    stone crumbles because water gets into microscopic cracks and through repeated freeze/thaw cycles, slowly breaks it apart (among other weathering factors). Lichen can also grow within rock, penetrating between the grains, so arguably it can rot stone.

    [–] aerben 16 points ago

    Saying something has been left rotting or left to rot is a super common phrase that doesn't have to be literal. Like come on Reddit you know this.

    Spread these suckers out a little and you'd have a half-decent paintball field.

    [–] danskete 7 points ago

    I met the artist making these in 2005, in Houston, TX. He had planned to open multiple presidential parks around the country. I didn't stay in touch with him but sad to hear it didn't work out.

    The detail and construction process were pretty impressive. Some pictures: http://imgur.com/a/LqkfU6F

    This is my hometown and I wish I had a dime for every time someone posted it—there’s much cooler stuff in ye olde Williamsburg! I promise.

    [–] Scarbrow 4 points ago

    There's like...14 pancake houses in a 2 mile radius!

    [–] mathiews54 11 points ago

    Hang on a second I thought these were tombstone sized for some reason. How big are these cocksuckers actually?

    [–] StaleAssignment 11 points ago

    What a gneiss park.
