Large Ox Cart, Ox, and Man

The Large Ox Cart and the Ox are not there. The concrete slab they were on remains, but it's empty. The Man is still there.

Ox cart.

Large Ox Cart, Ox, and Man

We came in search of the World's Largest Ox Cart and thought we had found it, but then on our way out of town we came across a 2nd ox cart claiming to be the world's largest....this one in need of a paint job and it was sans ox.

The first one was equipped with an ox and a man; although, he appeared to be missing part of the gun he is supposed to be carrying.

Sounds like someone has a sentimental attachment to the previous World's Largest Ox Cart. When a town replaces a civic symbol with a newer model, the original is often destroyed, put in storage, or exhibited at the local museum.
