"The Awakening" Sculpture is set in the sand on the shores of the Potomac River at National Harbor in Prince George's County, Maryland. In 2008, the Peterson Companies, the developer of National Harbor, purchased the sculpture and moved it from Hains Point in Washington, DC to its current location. “The Awakening” is a five piece cast iron sculpture depicting the arousing of a bearded giant with a head, hand, outstretched arm, bent knee and foot arranged to suggest that the giant is breaking free from the earth. The sculpture was part of a city-wide public art exhibition in 1980 and was on loan to the National Park Service for almost three decades.
