Old frieze at Millennium Park

Ever wanted to recreate the final scene in "Planet of the Apes" when Charlton Heston goes around that cliff, sees the remains of the Statue of Liberty and suddenly realizes what's happened?

You can get a taste of that by walking the path in the woods along the Charles River at Millennium Park in West Roxbury. The park used to be the city landfill and while most of the stuff there is now covered by several feet of clay and dirt, there are a couple of remnants of a large building frieze that lie exposed on the river bank, including "Machinery" above (the other one shows "Leather").
