SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Art Museum says work begins Monday on a new installation at the Olympic Sculpture Park on the waterfront.

The 46-foot-tall face of a girl will face Puget Sound in the direction of Mount Olympus and will be visible from land and water.

“Echo” is named after a nymph from Greek mythology who was deprived of speech, except to repeat the last words of another.

The work by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa has been given to the Seattle museum from the collection of Barney A. Ebsworth.

“Echo” was originally installed in 2011 in Madison Square Park in New York City.
