POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -

Members of a New York crew team are scratching their heads in amazement after finding a giant head floating in the Hudson River, the Huffington Post reported.

The head wasn't real, but made out of a combination of Styrofoam and fiberglass, the site reported.

The discovery was made by the Marist College crew team as they practiced earlier this week. Members towed it to the team's dock.

The head was 7 feet tall and appeared to Greek- or Roman-style in appearance.

Officials from the college told the Huffington Post that they think the head could be a theater prop, but no one has come forward to claim it.
