What is the strangest thing you have found while on your searches?
I found a ceramic peanut and a turtle with anatomical parts. Weird and strange... I figure someone made them in ceramics class then took them home where a mother/wife promptly threw them away.

My favorite “strange” thing I’ve found is this ceramic wall hanging of Ganesh a Hindu god. Found on the beach of New York Bay

It’s all funny until you find a Hindu/ Buddhist swastika on the beach. LOL !

I assume that must be a religious offering. Rivers are sacred in Hinduism and I've come across items left as offerings on riverbanks from time to time as well. Odd that yours managed to make it all the way into the bay, it doesn't look like something that would float very well and I don't think they're typically left in oceans (though I could be wrong about that?)

as you can see, it's broken and was in a "dump" area. I did check with someone i run with and i did not transgress. He agreed it was discarded and not an offering

Ah okay that's different then, odd coincidence for it to have ended up in the water anyway. Maybe a hippie-era decoration instead?
