Twin Towers Sculpture
Sculpture titled Twin Towers Sculpture by Michael Cooper. The sculpture consists of two towers made of copper and covered with religious icons, hearts, keys, and other symbols. The towers are mounted on a stone base. The sculpture has a multicolored patina, primarily green and a dark bronze color. It is housed in a custom storage crate, painted by the artist.
This sculpture, created by artist Michael Cooper, survived the 2005 storm surge of Hurricane Katrina. The damage the sculpture sustained brought new meaning to the piece.
