In 1977-1978, the American artist, Robert Indiana (b. 1928), created a 13-foot-tall steel sculpture in the spirit of international brotherhood to the people of Israel. The work, using the four letters of the Hebrew word ahava (love), is based on his well-known word-sculpture "LOVE". A Love sculpture, designed by Indiana, was first placed in Philadelphia's JFK plaza in 1976 as part of the United States' Bicentennial celebration. It immediately became a beloved Philadelphia icon.
