If you're talking about the character from Shelley's book "Frankenstein" then yes it's Frankenstein's monster. But if you haven't been living under a rock for the past 80 or so years then you would know that this sculpture is based on the classic movie monster, not the creature from the book. Frankenstein had the monster bit dropped way back in the 30's with classic movies like "Frankenstein meets the Wolfman" and "Frankenstein meets Dracula", and has been known simply as Frankenstein ever since.

The name of the creator—Frankenstein—soon came to be used to name the creation. That happened within the first decade after the novel was published, but it became cast in concrete after the story was popularized in the famous 1930s Universal film series starring Boris Karloff. The film was based largely on a play by Peggy Webling, performed in London in 1927.[3] Webling's Frankenstein actually does give his creature his name. The Universal film treated the Monster's identity in a manner that reflects its resemblance to Mary Shelley's novel: the name of the actor, not the character, is hidden by a question mark. Nevertheless, the creature soon enough became best known in the popular imagination as "Frankenstein". --wikipedia entry on Frankenstein's Monster
