  • This sculpture will be one of MANY things to photograph on this waterfront. I do recommend the a walk along the pier. And we did enjoy the Capital (Ferris) Wheel...  more »
  • I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but we were there anyway. It is a conversation starter and interesting, but also off-putting in a way. Certainly a curiosity.  more »
  • They close the beach gate due to Covid, so you could not see it closely but the statue is big enough allows you can take pictures from the deck that located top of the statue.  more »
  • I've been visiting this sculpture for 10 years or more. I came upon it randomly and I find it peaceful, yet mysterious. Worth a trip to see.
  • Very interesting attraction. Love seeing everyone enjoying the view.
  • Awesome place to take photos! The kids seem to love the statue.
  • Very relaxing and chill place to visit. Peace does depend on events and activities being held as well.
  • This guy use to be at hains point but was moved to the harbor. The kids love it.
