Twin Towers Tribute: String Art

There are plenty of examples of corporate America's 9/11 tributes, but this simple mass produced string art tribute is unique. There are many examples Twin Towers handcrafted items that were available for purchase, but examples like this, where it is not company driven (like the Joann Fabrics tribute quilt) and the individual creates the example, are less frequent. The company or individual seems to based in Islandia, NY, but the item was produced in China. It is also difficult to see this as art, but as other examples have shown, it is all about marketing and sales here. Handcrafted doesn't have the seem appeal as "string art."
