Wallet Card with Stikman

The mysterious Stikman has been posting street art in the form of little robot figures on NYC streets for over 20 years. From the Street Museum of Art website: "These small, robot-like figures found in pedestrian walkways are distorted by every tire mark and foot step that cross them.  Passed over by countless people each day, the pavement paintings often times go by unnoticed.  By hiding his work in plain sight, Stikman encourages the public to open their eyes and be observant to their surroundings."

Here is a Stikman at the intersection of 49th Street and 6th Avenue.
By comparison, here is the same Stikman in 2014 from flickr user Brecht Bug:
