Sculpture by: Niki De Saint Phalle

Quoted from gmtoday:

The Nanas are the creation of Niki de Saint Phalle, a French artist known for her whimsical mosaic sculptures covered in glass, mirrors and stones…‘‘Nana means ‘chick’ or ‘girl’ in French,’’ said Marcelo Zitelli, trustee of the Niki Charitable Art Foundation. ‘‘She wanted to tell people that women were capable, able to do art, to think and be active in society… (Of the Three Graces Fountain) …She wanted to do a dance between different races… I think it was her idea about different races to be able to dance together and to have a very good relationship between them.’’
