Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif.) — Just like the “Man with No Name” he played in a series of classic Spaghetti Westerns, the origins of a cardboard cut-out of Clint Eastwood standing in La Cañada Flintridge, Calif., is a mystery.

The life-size picture of Eastwood’s character from A Fistful of Dollars stands stoically, his steely squint keeping watch over the Crescenta Valley of Los Angeles County — and has gotten quite a few stares from hikers, and even drivers on a nearby freeway who can make out his silhouette.

The La Canada Valley Sun reports a sign taped to the back of the cut-out reads, “The World Sees Art and the Art Watches Back – Glendale Public Art Project,” though a city official says the piece isn’t apparently affiliated with any city arts project.
