The Awakening

'The Awakening"

This is a sculpture that was located on Hain's Point in East Potomac Park, but unfortunately it has been dug up and moved across the river to Maryland. Such a pity, this was a perfect setting for it, but I'm grateful to have captured it before they took it away.

Another view of this amazing sculpture appears here: and in the image immediately following this one.

Great shot of the awakening. One of the best I've seen. A pity they moved it as Hain's Point was a perfect location. "V"
