RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This began with a concept that connects the 1939 New York World's Fair and the 1964 World's Fair both having been sited in Flushing meadows, New York. It was commissioned by the New York Numismatic Club, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of it's founding in concordance with the 75th and 50th anniversaries of both New York World's Fairs.

CHALLENGE:
I attended the 1964 World's Fair as a 17 year old student of the High School of Music and Art. I was deeply impressed by the power and mystical beauty of Michelangelo's Pieta. It was displayed to the public from behind bullet proof plated glass.The viewers were on a conveyor belt and could only have a frontal view. Still with all these compromises, the divine genius of Michelangelo's creation was evident to all.
