Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #131: Emotions…

I saw this sculpture a few years ago at Garden For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. I think this is one of the most emotional sculpture I’ve seen. What is their story? Are they re-uniting or parting? Look into her eyes, do you see joy or sorrow? Are they in a secluded spot for a reason? The possibilities of their story are endless.

If you’re ever in NJ and looking for a delightful way to spend the day visit the Grounds For Sculpture, you won’t be sorry. And don’t forget to look for the hidden art !https://www.groundsforsculpture.org/

In Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey stands Empty Sky:New Jersey September 11th Memorial  This memorial is dedicated to New Jersey’s 749 innocent loved ones who lost their lives that day at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Shanksville, PA.

From the Empty Sky website:  “Empty Sky” remembers those lost while simply and powerfully connecting New Jersey to Ground Zero. Twin walls transect a gently sloped mound anchored by a granite path that is directed toward Ground Zero. The length of each wall is exactly equal to one side of the former World Trade Center Towers as the height of the wall reflects proportion of the former buildings if they were lying on their side. . The seven hundred and forty nine (749) victims’ names from the State of New Jersey face one another on the interior elevations of the twin brushed stainless steel walls within easy reach. The walls channel visitors to the location in the Manhattan skyline where the former World Trade Center towers once stood.”
