Fulcrum superstar Carlos taking a quick photo break by the Echo Sculpture at the Seattle waterfront, on a stunningly beautiful Seattle summer day. Echo (2011), a dramatic 46-foot tall figurative sculpture by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, was installed in 2010 on the shoreline of the famous Seattle sculpture park. Plensa is one of the world's foremost sculptors working in the public space, with over 30 projects spanning the globe in such cities as Chicago, Dubai, London, Liverpool, Tokyo, Toronto, and New York.
Echo has been given to the Seattle Art Museum from the collection of Barney A. Ebsworth. It was originally commissioned by the Madison Park Association in New York and installed at Madison Square Park in 2011 to great acclaim. It is made from resin, steel and marble dust. The sentient biped in front of the statue is 99% made from oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus.
