David Kracov is an American sculptor, painter and animator. After receiving a degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, he moved to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career in animation. He was commissioned by the Holocaust Museum of St Petersburg, Florida to create now the world-famous sculpture which depicts the Tazmanian Devil tearing the roof off of a boxcar to release hundreds of hand-painted butterflies – which represent the souls of the 1 million children who lost their lives in the Holocaust. David now adds one single butterfly to every piece that he creates, sometimes visible, sometimes hidden. Sculpture “Reflections” was created as a tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11, it depicts the New York skyline, with butterflies soaring towards the sky, where the Towers once stood. In the reflections below, the Towers can be seen.
