I find this sculpture rather threatening,

I’m fairly sure that wasn’t the artist’s or the commissioning body’s intention.

Update: 05 October 2008. In a recent council magazine it was stated that the two identical sculptures (one at either end of the precinct) represent the breaking sea.

If I really want this to look menacing I ought to change it to a duo-tone image, the warm lighting removes a lot of the menace from the sculpture.
