About the Artwork


This featured artwork captures certain aspects of the aftermath of events of September 11, 2001. Through the use of powerful symbolism, the masterpiece depicts the New York city skyline and its reflection in the adjacent Hudson river. The skyline illustrates the current city skyline, while the reflection in the river illustrates the same skyline prior to 9-11 (with the World Trade Center standing).

The four eagles soaring in the top left corner of the drawing depict the four divisions of the U.S. armed forces that were dispatched abroad to protect the country, soon after the events on 9-11 - the U.S. Air Force, the Army, the Marines, and the Navy.

The two eagles hovering above the water (separated from the four above) represent the two divisions of the U.S. armed forces that stayed behind promptly after 9-11 to protect the U.S. homeland - the National Guard and the U.S. Coast Guard / Border Patrol.

The stems of red roses held tightly within the claws of one of the hovering eagles represent and memorialize the lives lost since 9-11. The falling red petals from the roses leave a visible trail in the water back to the image of the World Trade Center twin towers, further depicting the connection of the lives lost with the towers.

This masterpiece is one of two specially commissioned artwork created by EKTIMIS to commemorate the 10th year anniversary of 9-11.
