This Giant Cocaine Snorting Oscar Statue Has Taken Over Hollywood Boulevard (7 pics)

There’s probably not enough cocaine in Hollywood for this statue to get its fix. Street artist Plastic Jesus is trying to raise awareness about drug abuse in Hollywood and he’s certainly got everyone’s attention thanks to this giant cocaine sniffing Oscar statue. He placed the statue on Hollywood Boulevard at La Brea Avenue on Thursday morning which is where the street will be closed off for the big awards show. In recent years Plastic Jesus has pulled similar stunts even going so far as to showcase an Oscar statue with a heroin needle in its arm.

Nelson Mandela Sculpture (5 pics)

It’s a stunning monument of Nelson Mandela with an interesting symbolic meaning. The statue was created by a South African artist Marco Cianfanelli to recognize a 50-year anniversary of the imprisonment of Mandela and put at exact spot where Nelson Mandela was arrested. This prominent peace activist was captured by the apartheid policy in 1962 and spent 27 years in prison. The monument is constructed out of 50 separate steel bars to represent 50 years since the capture.

American Sculptor Carves World’s Biggest Halloween Pumpkin (6 pics)

Scott Cully has made a name for himself by carving overgrown pumpkins, and he even held the previous record for the world’s largest jack o’lantern, but this year he managed to beat his own record and get another mention in the Guinness Book. It took him two days, working at a pace of 100 pounds per hour, to work his way through the giant pumpkin, grown by Chris Stevens, from Wisconsin, but he managed to do it just in time for the big Halloween party. The event took place at the New York Botanical Garden, and it’s probably still on display, so you can check it out, if you’re in the Big Apple.
