The Woodlands, Texas: Antigravity Girl

Alien abduction? The Rapture? Acrobat family? A sculpture blandly titled "Children at Play" appears to show a young girl floating skyward. And it's at a mall.

Alien Abduction Statue

There is a statue in The Woodlands officially titled "Children At Play," but it looks more like a girl being lifted into space by alien forces. Sculpted by Clement Renzi, dedicated on January 21, 1984, it is at the Panther Creek Village Center near a Mexican restaurant. The statue features two boys grabbing a girl's arms as she floats skyward.

When I went to visit my sister and her family it was one of the first things we went to see. My niece knew I would enjoy it.
