Jonothan Borofskys art works can be found at several places around the world - the man walking to the sky was originally situated in front of Fridericianum - usually the main venue for documenta. a peoples initiative collected money to keep the sculpture in Kassel.

Very interesting and it is just opposite a sculpture of a lady on a pool jump. (On the reiss hotel). Both of them correspond with each other.
