Statue of Hammering Man

Local nameHammering Man
LocationJongno District, Seoul, South Korea

Hammering Man is a series of monumental kinetic sculptures of a painted steel silhouette of a man with motorized arm and hammer movement. They were designed by Jonathan Borofsky at different scales and painted black, to symbolize and celebrate workers throughout the world, and they were structurally engineered by Leslie E. Robertson Associates.

According to Public Art in Public Places, the aging kinetic feature of the sculpture's hammering arm can fail due to poor maintenance of the electrical motor component, thereby compromising the sculpture's intended effect and integrity.
