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?” He sticks out his tongue at customers and passerbys, beckoning them to come on in and check out his pipes.

I first saw the this giant metal man while taking a road trip from Chicago to Mount Rushmore. Looking for more Minnesota roadside attractions? Check out the Jolly Green Giant statue and a statue of his friend Sprout in Blue Earth.
