The caption on the postcard reads "The Sea Sculpture at Sunset statue by Yehiel Shemi". The twist is the postcard was sent by the artist Shemi himself to a friend in NY asking him to watch his special on ABC. Not a lot of philatelic value but pretty cool otherwise. One has to wonder what the sculpture he referenced sending was....
