Coventry Cathedral Ruins
Sculpture by Josefina de Vasconcellos
placed in Coventry Cathedral ruins in
1995, 50 years after the end of WWII
For a short period of time this sculpture
was moved to the new cathedral for safekeeping
while the floor of the old cathedral was being restored.
The wording reads:
In 1995, 50 years after the end of the Second World War
this sculpture by Josefina de Vasconcellos has been
given by Richard Branson as a token of reconciliation.
An identical sculpture has been placed on behalf
of the people of Coventry in the Peace Garden, Hiroshima, Japan.
Both sculptures 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.
