Chaim Gross completed this carved wood bas relief, entitled “Puddlers,” in 1942 with funds provided by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. It was installed in the Irwin post office lobby. It was moved to the new post office in 1965. The bas relief was removed from its unsecured space in the post office lobby after it was professionally evaluated at over $250,000.
