What is the story behind your artwork?
“This submission is in remembrance of the many people that lost their lives in 9-11-01 World Trade Center attacks; those that were in the buildings when the attacks happened, and those that rushed to their aid. The bald eagle represents the citizens of the United States. The eagle’s wings are wrapped around the towers in a supportive hug. We will forever hold their memories and remember the sacrifices made that day.”
