Who's Hiding Tiny Sculpted Ears All Over Your City?

Ears have been popping up on surfaces around the world. From a Turkish castle, to the Dubai Mall, to even inside an Italian contemporary art museum, over 300 ears are part of the anonymous, crowdsourced street art project, Ear and There.

The artist behind the work is revealing few details about the initiative, but told The Creators Project the hope is "everyone who experiences the project will do so in their own way." He or she did admit, however, that the epoxy ears were molded off of their own right ear—and that there are a lot of them. If you're reading this, consider it a personal invitation to obtain a "souvenear" of your very own and place it on a wall, too. All it takes is to order one online, to make your desired modifications (like color, in case you want to hide your ear—or make it stand out), and to stick it wherever you want. 

Check out the ears, placed in different locations, below:
