Thanks for your placed link @PuzzleG , what an amazing story! I've also never heard of it before.
Although tastes differ, I think it's beautiful made and very resepectful to ALL victims.
Sadly to read in the article the comments and treatment to it. Wow..., the rudeness and arrogance of some people to a "gift"....... it made me (almost) speechless.
"You mustn't look a given horse in it's mouth." and that's what came to my mind when I read that "further info" part. (or it must be a Trojan horse ;-) ....but then one must better look at the other end.)
Anyway, TFP this bbandit and I hope it will get more attention & appreciation from the rest of the world through posts by people like you. :-)

The information I gave below was obtained from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_the_Struggle_Against_World_Terrorism. I make no claim to it, I'm just passing it on for the benefit of others who may be interested in this monument's history, as I was.

An honorable monument that should be much more widely known. The sculptor paid for this out of his own pocket, & it is valued at over $12M, US dollars. How sad that this beautiful offering of sympathy & peace was not more noticed or appreciated. In fact, it was originally rejected by the city of New York, & now rests in Bayonne, NJ. Its 11-sided base bears the names of the fallen in the 9-11 terrorist attacks & in the World Trade Center bombings. A 4 foot piece of metal from the World Trade Center has more recently been placed adjacent to it.

Darn, missed out getting on the board by 0.01 of a second. Never mind, loved the puzzle. ☺

Spectacular, shame it isn't so well known. Great puzzle, thanks bbandit.

Pammi, I had never heard of it either till about two years ago. Have never seen any postings so thought I would. It's pretty amazing.

Have bookmarked this for another day when I have more time.

I had never seen nor heard of this monument so went instantly to Google and how very touching a story. I think this sculpture is beautiful and really meaningful but apparently hardly anyone in New York knows of its existence, which is pretty sad.
