PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine police are on the lookout for a prickly piece of art.
Officials said Tuesday that a porcupine sculpture was recently stolen from the grounds of the Portland International Jetport. It’s one of 10 individual animal sculptures that are part of a work called Glimpse by artist Wendy Klemperer.
The metal animals are the first thing travelers see when arriving at the airport.
Animals include a deer and wolf. The porcupine that was stolen is nearly 3 feet long and is made from steel and repurposed nails.
A police report has been filed but the sculpture has not been recovered. Police are asking anyone with information about the missing sculpture to contact them.
