Sho, a monumental sculpture by contemporary Spanish artist Jaume Plensa (b. 1955). Completed in 2007, the work represents a female head and is formed by white-painted stainless steel openwork mesh. It stands approximately 13 feet tall and 10 feet wide (157 ½ x 157 ½ x 118 -1/8 inches) and weighs 660 lbs. Plensa uses line in this sculpture to delicately render the contours of a young girls face. I highly recommend the new exhibit The Stewart Album…beautifully illustrated letters with incredible pen and ink drawings!
