Photographer's Note

Currently, Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa is displaying his latest artwork in Madison Square Park, just north of the Flatiron Building. It is a 44 foot (1341 cm) monolith entitled "Echo".

The work is based on a nine year old girl from the artist's Barcelona neighborhood, and it depicts her in a state of thought and dreams. It also makes reference to the figure of Echo from Greek mythology.

On a beautiful spring day people were enjoying the sun on the Oval Lawn, next to the peaceful statue, who also seemed to be enjoying the lovely weather. :-)

***Technical note: the head may appear to be distorted in this photo, but that is the actual shape. It is a bit flatter than an actual face.
