A permanent sculpture, which weighs 3,000 pounds and is 12 feet high by 10 feet wide, featuring two whale tails which 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.
