Tear of Grief

Zurab Tsereteli - Tear of Grief (2006)
This is Zurab Tsereteli's monument Tear of Grief, which seems a more fitting name than the official title: To The Struggle Against World Terrorism. It stands in the new memorial park in Bayonne, New Jersey, in sight of the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero, where the twin towers of the World Trade Center - outlined - were struck on that day of infamy 11 September 2001. This monument is a gift from Russian President Vladimir Putin, from the artist, who paid some of the costs himself, and from the people of Russia. It will be dedicated this year on the 5th anniversary of 7/11.
