About 13 years ago, I built this plastic model of a T-Rex. Being an amateur Paleontologist, I painted it to scientific specifications, too. I think it came out pretty damn good, if I do say so my damn self.
So come packing time, I decided that it was time for it to go. I chucked it in a trash bucket, and took it down to the Boxboro dump, along with everything else.
About 3 weeks later, I went back to dump some more stuff, and found it propped up like this, for all to see. 3000 miles away, I have public art (albeit in a dump).
