Nine years ago, Heather Marks brother was given a stolen art sculpture of an airplane stuck in a pile of cow poop which ended up in storage at their grandfathers farm.
After being away from its owner for so long, Marks decided to return the crappy piece to its original artist, Robert Koutny, and insists his poop didnt have a harrowing kidnapping experience.
She says, We werent doing anything exciting with the cowpie. We didnt dress it up or anything. It just sat there as a conversation piece.
Marks says she considered selling the cowpie, but opted to return it instead.
However, she hopes it isnt worth anything or shell regret her good deed.
Though the artist was happy people were taking the cowpies, and considered their sticky fingers a compliment, hes happy to have it back and hopes other stolen manure masterpieces find their way home too.
