Photo Challenge #247

We pass it a million times: the iron statue of a buck, on the Post Road.

But — because it’s a bit hidden by shrubbery — we don’t always notice it. (Click here for the photo.)

Some “06880” readers thought it was at Terrain. Seems like it should be there, with all the other plants and such.

But it’s not.

It’s at Mitchells — the upscale clothing store, diagonally across the street.

I have no idea why it’s there. But Mary Ann Batsell was first with the right answer.

If anyone knows the back story behind the Mitchells buck, click “Comments” below.

Click “Comments” too if you know where in Westport you’d find this week’s Photo Challenge.

  9. In answer to why the iron statue might be at Mitchells:
    “The buck stops here”?

  10. Yes, it is the Levitt Pavilion lighting. An easy one — though the other guesses were not bad either!

  20. I don’t know if this is a helpful hint, but the iron statue is of a European red deer stag, closely related to the North American elk.
