I remember climbing into his mouth when I was young. You should include some pictures of that!

I'm not sure, but I believe its new location is barely a couple miles downriver and still in public view.

The right arm of this sculpture is featured on either the cover or inner sleeve of one of the two Marginal Man albums I ended up selling to cover for my deadbeat roommate's rent in my first apartment. Secret of being a deadbeat roommate -- make sure you're on the lease and a good 5 years older than the rest of the people in the apartment.

Also if you are going to be a deadbeat roommate it helps to establish a 'mean of reciprocity' before actually you actually renege on the rent. For example if you have an argument with your girlfriend be sure and punch a hole in sheetrock. The heavy lifting is then convincing your cohabitants to chip in to repair said hole. There are numerous ways to approach this kind of persuasion, which are beyond the scope of this post-consult your local library. Once you can achieve this, and assuming your name is on the lease and you are 5-10 years older then your roommates, you can be assured of free rent until you succeed in getting everyone evicted.

@bartleby - ya beat me to it. It was in fact on the inside of the Identity album, by Marginal Man.

I just saw this for the first time a couple of months ago.

The Awakening is featured in TV John Langworthy's award winning music video, "Memories, Oh Memories"! Which is more monstrous, the giant's pained expression or TV John's gargantuan hands?

Yeah I don't think the new location is too far from the old one. I think it has something to do with the inevitable and total gentrification of DC's NE, SE and SW regions. They are building a new "town" in the Anacostia area of Southeast DC that is supposed to attract tourists and sports fans. Great. So I guess they need room to build in the Hains Point area or something...

it is a bummer

but if everyone loved it so much

why did they not take action a year ago

protest?
earn the money to buy it themselves?

let the NPS know that this sculpture needs to stay at Hains Point

too late now

gwadzilla

Marginal Man Rocked!

very pop for the dc scene
but very cool just the same

where are they now?
