As soon as people witnessed what Eddie did for the Hawkins gang, they immediately went on to Twitter to pour in love for the character. And now that two weeks have passed, their way of showing appreciation has grown in magnitude.

Stan Herd, a professional earthwork artist, has created a monument to the late, great Eddie Munson (Joe Quinn) near Hawkins, Indiana. He created a massive work of art (that covers about an acre!) totally out of natural materials.

Eddie’s prairie grass invention is based on a moment from Episode 1 of Season 4, in which he hops upon a table in the Hawkins High cafeteria and gives a speech condemning “forced conformity” in defense of his love of Dungeons & Dragons.

In the artwork and the scene, Eddie forms devil horns with his ring-strewn fingers, pushing his tongue out in an incredibly metal manner. Herd’s Eddie Munson 4 Ever homage was inspired by that outstanding act.
