The Sphere

The Sphere by Fritz Koenig, Battery Park, New York
The Sphere” by Fritz Koenig
Battery Park
New York, September 2007

For three decades, this sculpture stood in the plaza
of the World Trade Center. Entitled “The Sphere”, it was
conceived by artist Fritz Koenig as 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 that were lost. Their spirit and
sacrifice will never be forgotten.
