Sure, summer might be winding down, but you know how you can make the most out of these last warm nights? By installing this handsome-looking, 55 foot, Astroturf-covered wooden stealth fighter sculpture in your very own backyard!The sculpture spent its summer on Governors Island as part of Figment Fest, where it was thoroughly crawled upon by thousands of children. Now, artist Zaq Landsberg is looking to find a nice home for his project, which must be dismantled and removed from the Island next week. Landsberg is asking a paltry $25,000 (or best offer) for the sculpture.

Is it me, or does that look photoshopped?

It looks that way, especially the wing, but I think its real. Consider its strange colour, full scale dimensions and perspective effect. So the front part looks normal, but the outer part of the wing is so far, that it looks like modified in computer.
