Monument to Uriah Levy, Commodore of the US Navy

Bronze, 4m. Philadelphia, USA 2011

On December 16th, 2011 was unveiled the monument to the Commodore of the US Fleet, Admiral Uriah Levy. Friends of sculptor, Harry Tabakh and Joshua Lendes accomplished an near impossible mission: the monument received a place of honor sitting just in front of the Independence Bell, where the US constitution was proclaimed. Next to it stand a building known to all Americans, because it is depicted on the One hundred US dollar bill; it is the building where the independence of USA was declared. The monument to Admiral Urai Levy proudly stands on a high pedestal on the famous square, named in Haym Salomon’s honor, next of the famous synagogue bearing his name.
