GIGANTESCA ESTATUA DEL FAMOSO BESO DE TIMES SQUARE SERA INSTALADA EN SAN DIEGO CA.

The most famous kiss in America will soon be memorialized along the the California coast. A statue depicting the infamous couple kissing in Times Square to celebrate the end of World War II will be installed in San Diego on Valentine's Day. The 25-foot bronze statue weighs 15,000 pounds and will be placed along the Port of San Diego, near the USS Midway Museum. Sculptor J. Seward Johnson Jr. created the giant piece of artwork inspired by the pose, naming it Unconditional Surrender. The historic black and white photograph was captured on V-J Day (Victory over Japan Day) on August 14, 1945 by photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt. Sailor, George Mendonsa, has been identified as the man in the photo, who planted a wet one on Greta Friedman, a dental assistant, in Midtown Manhattan as the nation celebrated the end of the conflict. The picture was published by LIFE magazine and has become a symbol of the nation's joy at seeing an end to the devastating fighting that claimed the lives of more than 400,000 Americans. Mr Johnson created the sculpture to keep the famous pose alive. He has since produced several replicas of Unconditional Surrender, one was placed in Times Square, one in Pearl Harbor and one was commissioned to stand in Sarasota, Fla. The San Diego version of the piece was installed in 2007 and was intended to be a temporary display. But the community decided to commission a permanent version. The USS Midway Museum raised raised around $1 million to pay for the statue, in a fundraising effort called 'save the kiss.' The statue was transported, uncovered, from the sculptor's home in Hamilton, New Jersey on a flatbed truck San Diego. San Diego is home to the largest U.S. Navy base, with a population of 20,000 military personnel and 6,000 civilians. Its installation will be completed by Valentine's Day and the community will mark its official unveiling in a ceremony on Saturday. Couples who were married during World War II are expected to gather to renew their vows at the Navy Pier that sits next to the statue.
