The life-size sculpture is the work of Phillip Levine, who tried to capture the smooth walking style of pedestrians. Soon after Coulon Park’s creation, Levine’s sculpture was chosen for the park in 1982. Think of it as the Eastside’s version of the Waiting for the Interurban statue in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood.
