This is The Curmudgeon, a sculpture by Brigid Kennedy, an art teacher at a local high school. It is in the yard of a fascinating home in the West End of Hartford. The 1903 house is by William H. Scoville, who designed many homes in this historic neighborhood.
The house has chalet-like details and unusual carvings. Look at the circular detail on the porch, where the rail would usually be supported by balustrades.
Why The Curmudgeon today? It is my birthday. I thought it was appropriate.
