A millionaire and an artist collective called Ant Farm went crazy in 1973 and half buried ten Cadillacs in a row ranging in model year from 1949 to 1963. This crazy idea was a dedication to the golden age of the automobiles during that period. The integrity of this masterpiece and the spray paint graffiti are kept intact every time it’s shifted.

Dave Longaberger, owner of The Longaberger Company, is a man who is passionate about making handcrafted baskets. He always dreamt of making baskets, living in them and even working in them. An average basket is too small for him so he magnified it 160 times and constructed a huge building just like his baskets. The building is his workplace now, which happens to be 192 feet and 208 feet broad. Nobody knew what he meant when he said that he is going to work in a big company.
