Nymph Echo

A sculpture of the head of Greek mythological nymph Echo, by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, has landed in Madison Square Park, New York City.

The internationally renowned artist says the 44-foot-tall white fiberglass resin work was inspired by Greek mythology. She could only utter other people’s thoughts but not her own.



The massive scale of the work also draws parallels to Echo’s origin as a mountain nymph.
