About the Awakening Sculpture
This sculpture depicts a 100-foot giant struggling to free himself from the earth and is actually five separate pieces buried in the ground, created by J. Seward Johnson. The statue was originally at Hains Point in Washington, but it was moved to National Harbor in 2008.
