“A dog poo protest art piece”

The bronzed "coil" sits proudly atop a marble pillar on Augusta boulevard, daring all dog walkers to dare leave behind a "pile". Water ripples from the top of the statue as a sublet war cry to all 4-legged passers by to keep on walking.  The gross fountain is on private property, but that hasn't stopped sight-seers from taking a peak and snapping a poop themed profile pic of their own. If you're interested in checking out the turd memorial, remember to respect the homeowners and stick to the sidewalk…no pun intended.

Went there in March of 2015, no water running but the guy next door came out while we were taking photos and talked to us about the piece! Also if you look to your left while looking at shit fountain you will see a spiral ladder shooting into the air from one of the building tops also made by the same artist!
