BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – Historical and unique art pieces have been cemented into the sidewalk at Boston’s Haymarket.

Originally installed in the 1970s by sculptor Mags Harries, pieces of art made of bronze are being re-installed at the corner of Hanover and Blackstone Street. 

The pieces include everything from a bronze newspaper, to bronze apples, banana peels and even a bronze pizza slice. 

President of the Haymarket Pushcart Association, Otto Gallotto, said the unique artwork was popular among scavenger hunters. 

“They have these games that people come around and all of sudden you’ll [hear] ‘do you know where the sculpture, the gold sculpture is?’”

Gallotto said the pieces have not been on the street for the past two to three years because they were removed for a nearby construction project.
