image of Syrinx's Harp, 2002

​This harp sculpture is a mix of stainless steel and brass and was installed in 2002. In Greek Mythology, Syrinx was a mountain nymph chased by the god Pan to the edge of a river. In order to save herself, she pled to the water nymphs. They answered her plea by changing her into a cluster of reeds. Pan takes solace by gathering the reeds, forming them into an instrument and plays it.
