amongst other offices in the world trade center was the office of cantor fitzgerald’s firm. the owner was the biggest collector of sculpture by august rodin in the world. almost the entire collection got destroyed in the attacks but the strange thing is that one of the sculptor’s most famous work, the “thinker,” survived the destruction and disappeared. it seems it got stolen in the wreckage…photographer henri leutwyler shot this piece found in the fragments, it’s nice.
