So what exactly is Foamhenge??
Well, Foamhenge is a roadside attraction near Natural Bridge, Virginia. Constructed entirely from Styrofoam, Foamhenge is an artists replication of the famous UK landmark – Stonehenge (see what they did there!). Foamhenge is rumoured to have ‘appeared’ out of nowhere and April Fools Day. The attraction was created in 2004 by the owner of a local art studio – Mark Cline.
I visited in 2014, and as you can see, there’s lots of wear and tear and it could do with a lick of paint, but I imagine it looked a lot better in 2004.
So, I’m not exactly sure what the purpose behind the artwork is, but I am guessing that the Artists had been studying Stonehenge and wanted to demonstrate their ideas on how Stonehenge was constructed.
So here’s theory 1:
And theory 2:
So what do you think? I’m a strong Theory 1 supporter. If the Ancient Egyptians could construct several pyramids, dragging a few rocks and putting them in a circle is possible…right?!
