The Heroes Monument

World Renowned, Italian Sculptor, Sergio Furnari, has created a symbol of hope with his life-sized sculpture of a doctor/nurse praying.
The Heroes Sculpture was displayed in front of New York Presbyterian Hospital 
when the shift change happens at 7pm,  for health care workers. Everyone loved the tribute and people joined in to say a prayer.

Here is a video about the making of the Heroes Monument Statue.

This gofundme page is to help pay to make  this monument in The Bronx and funding some children art programs led by Sergio himself. The program consists on creating art made by children that will be displayed in public spaces and galleries. So far this creation of this Hero monument is being funded entirely by Sergio Furnari. And any financial help and support would be greatly appreciated!

This is not the first tribute to America's Heroes.  Sergio created the "Lunchtime on top of a Skyscraper" sculpture that was inspired by the famous photo of the same name. He sat at the footprints of The World Trade Center for months, so that the workers would see the tribute as they took breaks from work and even let them sit on top to take photos and feel recognized.
