9/11 Rescue Dogs

Following the tragic events of 9/11, Liza created a life-size rescue dog descending onto a base of actual rubble from the World Trade Center.

Authentic protective booties and vest were used in the casting process of the dog. In both sculptures there is a partially hidden bronze casting of a crushed New York City Fireman's helmet.
