Standing 9 1/2 tall, 2 Nutcracker soldiers flank the 7th Street Grand Entry to the Old Masonic Lodge Building during the holiday season. They first appeared at the building in late November, 2015, and will remain up until after the New Year. The Nutcracker soldiers were hand-made by Christopher Damon in his shop, using wood, vinyl, styro-foam and steel rods. Damon is Founding Partner of Damon Manriquez Partners, which owns and operates the landmark building. The Nutcracker soldiers took over 2 years to complete.
