I stumbled upon these statues on my first day vacationing in Seattle. While meticulously following my map from my hotel room in Seattle Center to Capitol Hill, I passed these sculptures and couldn’t help but stop for a moment to check them out. Standing outside of a Whole Foods store there were three seven-foot statues depicting a rosy-cheeked Asian family standing in a circle. The sculptures, titled “Young Woman, Girl, Mother and Child,” are by Seattle-based artist Akio Takamori (1950-2017). The painted cast aluminum sculptures were created in 2006.
