A sculpture in the shape of a heart was erected on the top of the pedestal in Durham, NC where a Confederate monument was toppled, according to WRAL.

WRAL reports the statue appeared outside the Durham County Courthouse Thursday morning but was later taken down.

There’s no word on who put up the sculpture.

Official plans for the monument site have not been announced.
