Heavy Wall Hanging

I just purchased a very heavy wall hanging of a concrete sun. It weighs close to 100lbs. I want to hang it on my brick fireplace. The sun itself has a very heavy duty hanger on it already. I am wondering what is the best way to put an anchor into my fireplace just above the mantle. I think the brick's on my fireplace are just 1/4-1/2" thick pieces over top of the frame.
Thanx for any help

If you have thin brick/fuax brick, you will have to locate a stud and make sure you hang from it. You may also want to consider hanging it from two studs, if the spacing works out.
