The Marist College men's crew team made an unusual discovery during practice -- a giant 'head' made of styrofoam and glass floating in the Hudson River.

Officials at Marist College in Poughkeepsie say the coach spotted a large object floating near the river's west bank. He hooked a rope to it and towed it to the team's dock on the east bank.

The object turned out to be a 7-foot-tall replica of a man's head made with Styrofoam and fiberglass. The head has the appearance of a Greek or Roman-style statue.

College officials believe it's a theater prop, but so far no one has come forward to claim the giant head.
