It is an eight foot bronze sculpture created by artist Judith Weller. It is a realistic figure of a garment worker, wearing a yarmulke and seated over a hand-operated sewing machine. The figure is modeled after the artist’s father, who was a machine operator in the NY garment industry. It was created to commemorate Jewish garment workers, the backbone of Jewish life in NY at the turn of the century. This sculpture was casted at The Modern Art Foundry in Queens, NY.
