Big image
◊ It looks as if a giant hand had picked up the sculpture from its intended location at the BP tower and angrily hurled it several blocks, where it ended up on its side.-Clause Oldenurg

◊ he came up with the concept by thinking of liberty and freedom in america.

◊ when when the sculpture first came to its location in 1981 the company SOHIO was bought out by BP so the installation of the sculpture was postponed until BP finally let the sculpture be installed.


° In my opinion i think the sculpture is very cool and stands for something every one on this planet should have, freedom.
