SP3379 : Reconciliation, Coventry Old Cathedral

taken 6 years ago, near to Coventry, Great Britain

Reconciliation, Coventry Old Cathedral
Reconciliation, Coventry Old Cathedral
In 1995, fifty years after the end of The Second World War, this sculpture by Josephina da Vasconcellos was given by Richard Branson as a token of reconciliation.

An identical statue has been placed in the Peace Garden at Hiroshima on behalf of the people of Coventry. Both statues remind us that, in the face of destructive forces, human dignity and love will triumph over disaster and bring nations together in respect and peace.
