Plans to erect a monument in honor of one of John Waters’s superstars Divine are in the beginning stages.

According to the Baltimore Sun, fans of the drag queen wish to have a monument placed in the location near Tyson Street where Divine infamously eats dog poop at the end of the 1972 film “Pink Flamingos.”

Divine Monument, the official website for the proposed landmark, says that residents and visitors frequently want to see the site where the movie’s ending takes place and a monument seemed like it would be a good addition.

The monument would be an estimated eight feet tall and three feet wide arch, made of marble and concrete, according to the Baltimore Sun. The arch would be on top of marble steps with a picture of Divine inside the arch.

The final touch would be a bronze piece of dog poop on the step to honor the “Pink Flamingos” scene.

Hopes are that the monument will be complete in time for Artscape, the city’s art festival, which runs from July 15-17. A Kickstarter campaign to fundraise for the monument is in the works.
