The plaque says "The sculpture group Manhattan Sentinels includes four cast iron totemic forms that range in hight from 36 to 39 feet and incorporate grass and seating areas on two plazas flanking the Federal Office Building at 26 Federal Plaza. The sculptures stand in active dialogue with our urban spaces. In the past, forms such as these served as monument to civic pride or spiritual devotion. Today they also celebrate human aspiration and continuity, and invite us to reflect on shared meaning and experiences. "
