Mortar Man

This little guy is tucked between some bricks and concrete between two buildings on Capitol Street in Charleston, WV. Do you know where to find him?

Apparently, he was lost for a while. Some renovations were being made to the building and a worker chiseled him out and took him home. So many people complained that the worker brought him back and put him in his rightful place, peeking out over all the busy people walking around below on Capitol Street.

Art makes life so much more interesting. You might have passed the Mortar Man a million times and not have even noticed, but once you know he's there, your daily walk to get coffee seems a little more magical.
