Long Description:
The OSP information about the piece and artist says this:

"A recent work, it is one in a long line of public installations by this veteran artist that playfully manipulates everyday objects. By hijacking a banal and ubiquitous street safety icon and amplifying it to heroic portions, it claims the whole park as a site where heightened caution and care should be taken - a sly pitch for a greater awareness of the space that surrounds us."

The sculpture was created in 2007 and place in the park in May of 2008.
