Maiden of Peace

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 19 October 2015 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

One of the prettiest sculptures in the Sculpture Zone, this piece was donated by the People's Republic of China in 1985. The plaque reads: "It expresses the sincere aspiration of the Chinese people for human love and the everlasting friendship between Japan and the People's Republic of China." Perhaps, China's current leaders should read this again.

It's a beauty. It's too bad the original statement was so positive considering the present attitudes.
