Hard-to-find WV folk art intrigues visitors to New River Gorge

Many West Virginians artists feel no need to feature their exceptional skills on stage or in a gallery. It's just part of what they do and who they are—artists. Such is the case with a mysterious stone carving created by a local West Virginian in the 1950s, way off the beaten path in Fayette County. 

But now this piece of folk art is regarded with awe by hikers, bikers and climbers from all over the world. The face is located near the new Canyon Rim Visitor Center, so you might want to check it out next time you are in the area.
