I can't remember either, but I do remember there's at least one earlier thread on the subject, maybe as a challenge suggestion. May try searching the forums a bit ...

Perhaps the term you are looking for is "simulacra"?

New Hampshire (USA) had one that was it's most famous landmark, and became part of the culture there and throughout New England. Unfortunately, it crumbled last year.
Here is the link to the before and after shots.
