A 30 foot giant metal cowboy sculpture stands outside of Nodine Culvert Sales in Nodine, Minnesota. The Culvert Man is made out of corrugated steel culvert pipes, giving his outfit a corduroy look and his cowboy hat a crimped flair. His eyes look up at the pipe he holds above his head with a furrowed expression as if to either say, “I’ve got this,” or, “when the heck can I put this thing down?” The Minnesota roadside attraction sticks out his tongue at customers and passerbys, beckoning them to come on in and check out his pipes.
