Stedman, North Carolina: Blues Brothers in a Cage

Although meant for the statues' protection, the enclosure creates an apt outdoor display for the often-jailed Blues Brothers. They've been here since the early 2000s, supposedly placed by the mayor, a big fan.

Caged Blues Brothers.

Caged Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers have been displayed in this small town for nearly 20 years, placed there by then-Mayor Billy Horne. It is said he was big fan, and that the statues were also a tribute to two area gentlemen who dressed as the Blues Brothers for community events. Due to vandalism over the years, the mayor erected a cage around them for protection.

An unintentionally apt display of these mass-produced statues. The Blue Brothers, no strangers to the slammer, seem right at home.
