Eight 29"x43" faceted glass panels manufactured by willethauser.com.

"In Patriasana, Wholesomeland, figures dance in a joyful frieze across the Fordham Road station on the IRT line, their brilliant colors and undulating forms evoking the vibrant nature of Fordham Road, a shopping mecca for the Bronx. The figures, shaped background panels represent basic wholesome items sold in the shops lining Fordham Road, such as an umbrella, a hat, a coat, boots, pants, and gloves. The border between the panels and the rectangular window edge is made of translucent glass, allowing the background colors of Fordham Road to provide a muted backdrop.

These original images were created as paintings on canvas and carved wood, translated into fused and faceted glass windows. The style of the paintings is inspired by the printmaking process.the wood, for example, has a curved background, like the block plates used in printmaking. Abstracted figures on rectilinear canvas attached to the curved freeform wood create a finished, assembled work of art."-- Moses Ros. Source: cuny.edu.
