An Oakland County homeowner’s backyard patio décor is getting a lot of attention.

Local 4 has obtained pictures and video of a bronze sculpture has been placed behind a home in a gated community in Orchard Lake.

And, yes, that’s a hand with the middle finger raised toward a neighboring home.

In a statement to Local 4, the owner explained, “I am expressing my displeasure with this guy who was involved with my wife while we were married.”

The sculpture, which reportedly cost about $7,000, has become a bit of an internet sensation since someone tweeted a picture of it on Friday.
