The "Unconditional Surrender" Kiss Statue
This piece of public art is designed after a famous photograph of an anonymous sailor kissing a stranger in Times Square the day the Japanese surrendered to end WWII.
The actual kiss took place in Times Square on V-J Day in 1945, between an unknown sailor and a nurse named Edith Shain. The kiss was photographed by Alfred Eisenstaedt and published in Time Magazine. The artist who created the 26-foot tall statue is J. Seward Johnson.
