CRATE Man is back.
And this time he has a four-legged friend.
Crate Man and a crate dog were lapping up the attention at Ellis Street in Flora Hill on Tuesday morning.
The mysterious man made of crates was in front of La Trobe University, just in time for O-week celebrations.
People walking past Crate Man stopped and inspected the crate sculpture.
"I wasn't sure what it was," one student said.
"It looks pretty cool."
Another young student who was walking to a nearby school asked the Bendigo Advertiser team what the giant crate creation was in aid of.
"What is it?," she said.
"I've never seen it before."
Crate Man's dog was decked out with glow sticks and was tied to the main sculpture with a piece of rope.
Crate Man Bendigo has been using Twitter to hint he would make a re-appearance this week. "I am back come find me gorgeous people," he tweeted on Monday night.
