Spotted in New York, Part 4: The Creepy Head of Madison Square Park
It looks like something you might see in a futuristic movie. But this slightly creepy but utterly fascinating head is "Echo," the work of Spanish artist Jaume Plensa. Curbed New York writes, via Mad Park News, that the sculpture is a "giant fiberglass resin face of a young girl in a dream state and was inspired by both a real 9 year old and the Greek nymph Echo."
Mad Park News says the sculpture will be on display through mid-August "as part of the Madison Square Conservancy’s groundbreaking Madison Square Art public art program."
