Seward Johnson’s 1982 sculpture “Double Check” for Liberty Park (near the World Trade Center) showed a very lifelike businessman sitting in the park. The businessman survived September 11, 2001 covered in debris. Johnson has called his sculpture an iconic “stand-in” for those who didn’t make it.
“Double Check” achieved iconic status when photographs showed it covered in ash and surrounded by debris. Then, when rescue workers and volunteers covered the sculpture with flowers, notes, pictures and hard hats, the bronze businessman nearly disappeared beneath the tributes.
Seward Johnson’s “Double Check” sculpture was dented but unbroken in the rain of 9/11 debris. It became a monument to survival as rescue workers put a hardhat and other mementoes on it.
From El Marco‘s collection it’s obvious the Obama-endorsed leftists continue to defile the statue.
Mommy and daddy entertain tourists by simulating sexual positions with a bronze statue. Note the excited man with camera giving the thumbs up in the background.
