sector5pro Taking a self portrait of my wife and I in the Bean. Walking around it I can't help but think of the scene in The Sphere where they disappear by looking at their reflection. A little creepy. 2d

wanjau Never knew the existence of #TheSphere from World Trade Center. Thr sculpture got damaged Sept 11. It now rests in #BatteryPark and serves as a Memorial.
It reads
For three decades, this sculpture stood in the plaza of the World Trade Center. Entitled The Sphere, it was conceived by artist Fritz Koenigas a symbol of world peace. It was damaged during the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but endures as an icon of hope and the indestructible spirit of this country. The Sphere was placed here on March 11, 2002 as a temporary memorial to all who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center.

This eternal flame was ignited on September 11, 2002 in honor of all those who were lost. Their spirit and sacrifice will never be forgotten.[9]

careen_san The Sphere, by German sculptor Fritz Koenig, in Battery Park. This sculpture was formerly located between the Twin Towers and was damaged on Sept. 11. It was meant to symbolize world peace and world trade. It was recovered and reinstalled here in its damaged state.

tmf_1701 "The Sphere" in 1971 shortly after its completion in Ganslberg/Germany before it was shipped to New York and installed at the World Trade Center Plaza. Fritz Koenig (*1924) in front of his great piece of art. Officially titled "Große Kugelkaryatide" but soon referred as "The Sphere". It was meant to symbolize world peace through world trade and rotated once every 24 hours on its fountain. The damaged sculpture is now located in Battery Park in New York. The picture gives an Impression of the sculptures size...
