This sculpture is on your left when entering the park from Embarcadero Two internal link. It is on a platform surrounded by plants, so it is not possible to walk right up to it.

The sculpture viewed from its north. The Embarcadero Two center is visible behind it. Note the street light to the right that illuminates a street two stories below.
