The World Trade Center Globe

The World Trade Center Globe
This large bronze sphere behind me was created by the German sculptor, Fritz Koenig. He created it to symbolize world peace through trade and commerce. For many years, it stood in the plaza of the World Trade Center building, till of course, the 9/11 attacks of 2001, and then it was buried beneath tons and tons of debris of the collapsed Twin Towers though remarkably, it survived. It got rather dented and battered but they managed to extract it from debris, reassemble it, and they installed it here a half a year after the attacks.
