I’ve mentioned Walking Man before, but this is the first time showing the 17-meter high sculpture that is literally walking across Leopoldstrasse. Designed by American artist Jonathan Borofsky, Walking Man was commissioned by the Munich RE Insurance company, and is installed so customers walk through the legs of the statue when entering the building. Borofsky has done hundreds of similar “bigger than life” sculptures, including the Hammering Man series in Frankfurt and Seattle. The sculpture was made in sections in Sun Valley, California, then assembled in Munich over 5 weeks. It has a steel inner structure and a fiberglass outer shell, as well as a staircase inside the upper body. At the top is a time capsule with written statements of the workers on the sculptures, as well as the workers from Munich Re Insurance.
