Ram



(click on the image for a larger view)

At first I thought this amazingly detailed sculpture of a ram must have been added by the truck's owner.

Hood ornaments have, of course, a long and well-documented history, but usually they are very stylized to serve as a representation of the brand (or the marque, as us foreign car fans call it.)

This one however, as you can see, is finely detailed, and completely realistic.

With a little research, it appears that this creature was original equipment on what I believe is a 1985 Dodge Prospector.
