The Figolu sculpture by Mark di Suvero rested on Crissy Field, San Francisco next to San Francisco Bay. Hence the appropriateness of the three steel buoys hanging from one arm.

A picnic table or bench was part of the base of the Figolu sculpture on Crissy Field. Although signs said to not climb on the sculpture, this table was just too inviting.
