A Jayson Werth gnome assembled out of canned seafood is now on display at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Approximately $3,800 worth of canned food was used to form the outfielder’s face.
The creation of gnome Jayson Werth was done as part of Arlington’s annual Canstuction competition, according to The Washington Post. The competition is from Nov. 14 through Nov. 22, and once the competition is over the cans are donated to local hunger relief groups.
The title of the Werth creation is “gnome-ore hunger.” Clever and thoughtful!
The gnome took ten creative people around six hours to create with nearly 2,300 cans. Talk about some dedicated Nats fans!
The group hopes that Werth will visit their creation since it will provide “a unique opportunity for him to see a 9-foot tall, canned-seafood gnome-age to himself, and to help us bring attention to a good cause.”
