Photographer's Note

The largest piece in the Frieze art exhibit in Rockefeller Center is a sculpture by famed Barcelona artist and sculptor Jaume Plensa.

This particular piece, entitled “Behind the Walls”, is a 30 foot (9 meter) high child’s head, with its hands covering its eyes.

Plensa explains this work with the following quote: “Sometimes, our hands are the biggest walls. They can cover our eyes, and we can blind ourselves to so much of what’s happening around us… To me, it’s an obsession to create a beautiful object with a message inside”.

Instead of showing this sculpture head-on, (no pun intended!), here is a reflection in the windows of the famed department store Saks Fifth Avenue. A blue Lancôme ad provided some nice color, and you can see the large head, together with some of the Rockefeller Plaza buildings surrounding it.

In the WS is a more traditional view.
