A permanent sculpture, which weighs 3,000 pounds and is 12 feet high by 10 feet wide, featuring two whale tails that come together to form a heart. The rope net represents the Southcoast's rich fishing heritage. The sculpture sits on two large 1,000-pound granite foundation stones from the original 1862 Wamsutta Mill, representing the extensive manufacturing industry during the nineteenth and twentieth century in New Bedford. A collaboration was formed between New Bedford Creative and MassDevelopment TDI for the financing of this project.​​​​​​​
