Buddha in New York

Floating off shore at Socrates Sculpture Park in New York, is a 10-foot high inflatable statue of the Buddha.

The art installation, titled “Floating Echo,” is by the Korean artist Chang-Jin Lee and will be on display in the East River until March the 3rd, 2013.

According to Sharon Otterman in the New York Times, people are definitely noticing the Buddha image, Brian Polanco said, “In the background, you see the whole entire city, and he’s just quietly sitting on the water. It puts some perspective on things.”
