This giant rooster is made entirely of frozen shit. An artist in Russia's Far East has marked the Chinese new year by fashioning a giant rooster sculpture out of frozen manure. At 11ft 6in tall and more than 12 feet long, the statue is sturdy enough to stand on. Dung art is something of a specialty for Mikhail Bopposov, a former state farm worker. His previous work has included sculpting horses, a dragon and a snake out of manure. Last year, he turned his hand to a monkey scene that he said symbolized evolution.
