J. Seward Johnson – The Awakening (1980)
The Awakening is a 70ft statue of a giant embedded in the earth, originally installed at Hains Point, Washington, D.C. The statue consists of five separate aluminum pieces buried in the ground, giving the impression of a distressed giant attempting to free himself. The artist is known for his large-scale sculptures, however, this piece is considered his most dramatic work.
