The glazed stoneware torso figures have mythological and ancient references. In Ovid’s account, Echo falls in love with Narcissus who doesn’t even notice her. While Echo’s body withers away until only her voice is left, Narcissus falls in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. The paper-like sculptures of Echo and Narcissus are reflected in the mirror bases. Nike is the Greek goddess of victory. Typically depicted with wings as, the grand “Winged Victory of Samothrace” installed at the Louvre, my version is seated rather than in flight.
