Crescent shape & bamboo structure need explanation

Area between the Powhite Parkway Bridge and the Boulevard Bridge on the south bank is known as Main Area WestThe area between the Atlantic Coast Line Bridge and the Boulevard Bridge on the south bank is known as Main Area West and it is part of the James River Park System. I have unofficially adopted this parcel of the park and clean trash there often in part due to some responsibility I felt for “giving away the secret” that this excellent spot existed.

Odd configuation on display in Main Area West at the bottom of the hill below Riverside DriveWhile cleaning trash there recently, I discovered a rather odd configuration on display at the bottom of the hill below Riverside Drive and before one would cross the railroad tracks. It was a bamboo structure with bamboo leaves spread across the top beside a crescent-shaped dugout in the dirt and mud. So many thoughts of what this could be came to mind:

  • A pig roast? Some cultures put the pig underground to cook all day.
  • Gnome picnic shelter? The movie Gnome0 & Juliet is still in theaters, right?
  • Religious ritual? Which ones care about crescents?
  •  A funeral pyre for a tiny Jedi?

No matter what it was, it isn’t likely destined to last long. That area was probably flooded by this weekend’s rains rushing down the hill. Does anyone know anything about this display?
