Hammering Man

The Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, Washington

"This sculpture, 'Hammering Man' was designed by Jonathan Brofsky. There are numerous
Hammering Man sculptures of different sizes all over the world, including New York, Los
Angeles, Germany and Japan. Seattle's is 48 feet high and weighs 26,000 pounds. Each
Hammering Man is marked with a unique number. Seattle's is #3277164.The Hammering Man's
arm 'hammers' silently and smoothly four times per minute from 7 am to 10 pm every day. It
runs on a 3-hp electric motor set on an automatic timer. Hammering Man rests its arm each
evening and every year on Labor Day." --Phil
