In fact, this is just one of nine sculptures the city has chosen to display along Park Avenue, from 50th to 68th streets. The ‘3D’ sculptures, made of stainless steel and lacquered with airplane paint, took Barrios several weeks to complete. But only a few precious seconds for New Yorkers to stop and appreciate. Did you see the illusion? Let us know below.
