Reconciliation

In 1995, 50 years after the end of the Second World War this sculpture by osefina de Vasconcellos has been given by Richard Branson as a token of reconciliation.

An identical sculpture has been placed on behalf of the people ov 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.
