Spring isn’t the only thing blooming in Boston.

The Museum of Fine Arts installed a new inflatable lotus flower sculpture on its front lawn Wednesday afternoon, according to Boston magazine.

“Breathing Flower,” created by Seoul-based artist Choi Jeong Hwa, is a 20-foot-wide inflatable sculpture. Its red fabric petals move and glow, giving it the illusion of breathing.

The installation is part of the museum’s upcoming contemporary exhibit “Megacities Asia,” which will be open from April 3 to July 17. The sculpture has also appeared in San Francisco and Sydney, according to Boston.
