CHELSEA, Manhattan (WABC) -- A vibrant brand-new piece of art is now on display on the High Line.
The "Old Tree" is a pink and red 25-foot-tall sculpture comprised of manmade materials.
It's meant to resemble the branching systems of the human organs, blood vessels and tissue in order to draw a connection between our own lives and the nature around us.
Swiss artist Pamela Rosenkranz created the sculpture.
"Old Tree comes alive on the High Line, amid the park's foliage and the surrounding architecture," Rosenkranz said. "I look forward to seeing how visitors further activate the sculpture."
It's her third piece of art commissioned for the High Line's Plinth, which is located at West 30th Street and 10th Avenue.
New Yorkers and visitors can see the sculpture now through the fall of 2024.
"Whether experienced up close or seen at a distance, 'Old Tree' serves as a beacon of possibility and renewal," said Alan van Capelle, executive director of the High Line. "The High Line's commitment to an exceptional public art program has never been stronger and 'Old Tree' is a testament to that commitment."
