Mr. Eggwards.

Humpty Dumpty

An anthropomorphic egg sculpture titled "Mr. Eggwards" is permanently sitting on a wall in Mount Saint Mary Park (He is securely anchored, so it's unlikely he'll have a great fall).

Since 2007 the park has featured an exhibit called "Sculpture in the Park," which features nearly 20 permanent and temporary (mostly bronze) sculptures by artists from around the nation. The works range from the sublime to the abstract to the strange, and may be seen along a 5/8 mile walking path. The temporary sculptures are available for sale, but aren't cheap.

The permanent sculptures include depictions of a frog, a boy and rabbit sitting on a turtle, a pear, etc. Some of the sculptures are 15 feet tall. The temporary sculptures are removed each fall, but I am not sure if the permanent ones are left out during the winter.
