Stonefridge - A replica of the famed megalithic monument done entirely in refrigerators by artist and independent filmmaker Adam Horowitz (not to be confused with the Beastie Boy), done entirely in Albuquerque. The sculpture is so massive that it now can even be seen on Google Earth. It has also been a backdrop for a music video. (via GoogleSightSeeing)

Done entirely in Albuquerque? Is the city big enough?

My house is so massive that I can see it on Google Maps, too!

Shouldn't it be Fridgehenge?

As usual, we in New Zealand were way ahead of you.

What mrnutty said.

Also, google maps isn't quite google earth I believe.

I was just out at the site on Saturday to take photos of it (on my website now). It's starting to fall apart faster than Mr. Horowitz can build it - vandalism mostly.

By the way, it's in Santa Fe, 60 miles north of Albuquerque.

I'm with Jawn, " Fridgehenge"

Of course it should be "Fridgehenge". After all, there's a Woodhenge very near Stonehenge.

From dictionary.com:
Henge: a prehistoric circular area with standing stone or wooden pillars and often enclosed by a bank or ditch, possibly used for rituals; also called henge monument

Also, I think Google Maps and Google Earth are equivalent now.

And then there's Nebraska's own Carhenge.

I am surprised that no one has posted the roadsideamerica.com list of various "henges". So...here you go.

Gee, everyone's said everything that I was going to say. Just thought I'd share that.

In addition to beating Albuquerque to all important fridge henge technology by several years as already mentioned, we've also built a decent full scale working replica of stone henge, recalibrated for it's location in New Zealand.

You know, in some areas people going about their daily business are so massive they can be seen on Google Maps.
