The Fossor
If you ever wondered what a gigantic mechanical beast capable of ripping you limb from limb would look like in a peaceful countryside, now you know.

" The Fossor, which takes its name from the Latin word for “the digger”, takes pride of place at JCB's World HQ in Rocester, Staffordshire. The steel sculpture, created by Walenty Pytel, is made entirely of digger parts and is a powerful representation of JCB. The creation, which weighs 36 tons and stands 45 ft high, was the largest steel sculpture in Europe at the time of its creation."
