NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - A couple of artists who call themselves “Myth Makers” are building huge birds made out of wires in Mid-City.

The “Avian Avatars” are going up on Poydras.

If you look closely, you’ll see the giant owl come into focus.

The artists installed five of the 20-foot-tall birds as part of the Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition presented by The Helis Foundation.
