Please help with the name for WTC painting!

Hi all. Nearing completion of a big (4x8 ft) painting of the WTC site under-(re)construction. Still not sure what to name it. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal but since I hope to get this into a museum I'd like to run it's title by as many people as possible.

I'd like to mention something to the importance of this certainly not being any typical construction project; but also want to avoid any overly cliche words like 'rebirth' or 'phoenix'

Thoughts? Feel free Edit or add to any of the ideas I listed. Thanks!

90% done:

I voted Twenty-Seven Cranes, but I think I'd leave off the sub-title. I think the image and location are effective enough.

Well, the main thing that grabbed me about this painting is the crane on the main tower under construction,,,its kind of angel like or birdish!..I dont like the titles in the voting that you have...the first title I thought of was FLYING WITHOUT WINGS... but that could be taken the wrong way.

Funny thought this had faded away. Decided on Twenty-Seven Cranes, with the sub-title (sorry HomeInMyShoes).

Thanks all for the continued interest. I'll keep it's status updated HERE and if you're into my work, and on tha Facebook feel free to follow on here:





Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
