YZKAR 9/11 Communal Memorial Light
Memorial sculpture titled YZKAR 9/11 Communal Memorial Light by Tobi Kahn. The sculpture utilizes a facsimile of a piece of a recovered I-beam which forms the base. Cast bronze towers are centered on the beam with a Ferric Nitrate polished bowl sitting on top of the towers. The bowl holds a votive candle.
In recognition of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, artist Tobi Kahn created a work of art consisting of two memorial lights, cast in bronze, to commemorate the lives lost at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Referenced as YZKAR, the paired works were inspired by his receipt of two remnant pieces of architectural steel recovered at Ground Zero.
