A pair of hooters, sitting way up high... on the back corner of Stewart Hall. This building on WVU's downtown campus was originally a library, completed in 1902. It's not uncommon to find stone owls near the tops of old buildings. These are supposed to help keep pigeons away.
Then again, the owls are an appropriate motif for a library. They are an ancient symbol for Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom.
