The most distinguishing feature of the Echo11 sculpture is the Anchor/tieback that is still attached to the concrete. This is the only one of its kind that has been brought up and out of the ground to be made in sculpture form. This sculpture also has beautiful striations similar to rings on a tree from the diamond-studded wire saws that were used by the construction workers as they were
cut out to make room for the new subway PATH station hub to bring people back into the new World Trade Center Area. There are various markings of rust cascading down onto the sides from years of being exposed to weather and rain. Bentonite slurry and large aggregate stone concrete make up the two different types of concrete, along with rebar and other steel.
