<p>A dinosaur head mysteriously appeared on Halloween and then disappeared on Monday, Nov. 3 atop “Arc of History,” a controversial piece of public art in Durango.</p>

A controversial sculpture displayed at a major Durango intersection called the "Arc of History" is history.

The city-owned sculpture is a span of stone slabs impaled on a long steel rod. It has been the target of much public ridicule since its installation last year including a number of vandalisms to make it look like a dinosaur, a Chinese New Year dragon and even a graduate, with a cap and gown.
