'S' series #128.S.
This is an authentic piece of the concrete slurry wall that once surrounded The Twin Tower area and the World Trade Center in New York City. Made into historical works of art sculpture, the limited edition, 200 piece 'S' series had only 7 sculptures with metal rebar embedded into the concrete. Some of the 7 have already been sold leaving only a few remaining to purchase.
This #128.S, measures in inches, 5.5 x 6.2 x 6.75 and is 14.4 lbs. It has a natural concrete look, with a clear varnish and a piece of metal rebar is peeking out the middle front. There is also a groove on the top that is wide enough and long enough to hold a pen or pencil, if you so choose to have it on your desk. An engraved arrow is on the side. Finally is signed and numbered on the bottom with felt pads to ensure a scratch free surface placement in your home or business.
Each sculpture comes with a certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist.
Each of the "S' series 9/11 sculptures, have an engraved arrow pointing upwards, to symbolize a coming up and out of the ground, with a positive message of the hope and rebuilding of our nation and spirits since 9/11.
Message from the artist San. "I believe in the power of memorials to heal upon, after witnessing all who have come to my studio from young to old, military, police, firefighters and those who have lost loved ones in 9/11. Let us never forget."
**Each one of the 'S' series 9/11 sculptures for purchase here, helps to fund Project 911UP, in the development of those seventeen, 16,000 lb. larger National memorials being placed around North America.
**12% of each sculpture purchased by you, is donated to each of the three National Memorials in New York City, Pennsylvania, and The Pentagon. They are aware of this project and are happy to receive their donations.**
#128.s--9/11 sculpture with metal rebar
PROJECT 911UP was created by Artist, Sandra Lynn Priest, aka, San. San was given the honor of creating sculptures out of salvaged, cut out sections of the original concrete slurry, foundation wall, that once surrounded the World Trade Center which was built in 1968. Sections of that 4 foot thick wall were only cut out to make room for the new PATH subway station, now leading people into the new Trade Center area. After over 100 pieces were cut out for this opening, seventeen, 16,000 pound pieces of the wall were saved for an artists touch as 9/11 memorials. San was chosen as that artist.
