Fritz Koenig, The Sphere and 222?

Yesterday when I was writing my post about 'The Boy from Oz', Hugh Jackman sharing his birthday with Aleister Crowley I noticed that Fritz Koenig passed away on February 22nd, 2017 -
Hugh Jackman: The Boy from Oz?
A sphere in the movie 2:22?
Fritz Koenig (20 June 1924 – 22 February 2017)
"The Sphere (officially Sphere at Plaza Fountain) is a 25-foot (7.6 m) high, cast bronze sculpture by German artist Fritz Koenig.
It is currently located in Liberty Parkat the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, New York City.
Originally located at the Austin J. Tobin Plaza, the centerpiece survived the collapse of the World Trade Center towers, which resulted from the September 11 attacks in 2001."
2:22 on 2/22?
"Koenig's body of work largely consists of figures or shapes assembled from simple geometric forms cast in metal.
His representions of human form are heavily stylized, with heads made of spheres and bodies and limbs of cylinders.
His Holocaust memorial design exemplifies this, adding bones poured on a mound."
The strange thing about Koenig's major art works is that they seem to be memorials, but 'The Sphere' wasn't a memorial (that I know of anyway) until after 9/11.
"Originally placed at the center of the Austin J. Tobin Plaza beneath the twin towers, The Sphere was recovered from the rubble, visibly damaged but largely intact.
After being dismantled and stored near a hangar at
John F. Kennedy International Airport, the sculpture was the subject of the 2001 documentary Koenig's Sphere.
On March 11, 2002, six months after the attack, The Sphere was relocated to a temporary location in Battery Park, where in unrestored condition it was re-dedicated (September 11, 2002) with an eternal flame.
Having become a major tourist attraction, the unrestored sculpture was re-dedicated on August 16, 2017 by the Port Authority at a permanent location in Liberty Park, overlooking the 

September 11 Memorial and its original location."

It certainly is a mad world and strange synchromystic sphere we are all on ... even if you are one of those dumb-ass flat-earthers (certainly not me, by the way);-)
