The model needs to see a doctor about that rash around his member.
These have been in place for a year or so. (In certain locations. They are being added as they go.) In situ, it is quite clear they are plants.

Vicki Scuri, VDOT Arlington Boulevard Interchange Project
After a nationwide call for artists in 2004, Arlington County selected artist Vicki Scuri to incorporate artistic design treatments for the concrete walls, abutments, and bridges. Ms. Scuri has been working with Arlington County and VDOT engineers to create an integrated design for the project. Ms. Scuri’s design patterns are inspired by the local Red Bud Tree and when installed will create a two inch pattern relief on the erected concrete walls. In addition, the artist designed a weathered steel grill for the bridge spans, which will feature up-lighting components to augment the overall aesthetic impact of the design. Ms. Scuri also worked closely with the VDOT engineers to enhance the railing components for the pedestrian and bicycle trail.
This project has been a successful collaboration between VDOT, Arlington County's Departments of Environmental Services and Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources, and will be the first public art project of this scale for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
