Kirby and his tribute to the protesters.

An artist has created a sculpture depicting an Occupy Wall Street protester laying on the concrete, with his feet sticking out from under a blanket. The piece is in Zuccotti Park, as a tribute to those sleeping there for well over a month now. Norman Kirby says in the below video that he was inspired to make it after sleeping in the park for one night, which he said was "one of the roughest things I've ever experienced... it wasn't even the cold, but it was just being uncomfortable on the ground. I did it for one night, and it's very difficult. So I applaud these people here for doing this." And he hopes his tribute doesn't scare anyone:
