Peace Statue

 

Peace Statue stands in Nagasaki Peace Park, which was built at the exact site the epicenter

of the atomic blast of Aug. 9, 1945, of fateful day and warning about the destructiveness of the 
Atomic Bomb. 

The bronze Peace Statue has one left arm extending horizontally and other right arm pointing to the sky.

The left arm stretching to the horizon symbolizes world peace, and the other right pointing skyward 

indicates the threat of atomic destruction (the harm of nuclear power). 

The closed eyes show the prayer for the peaceful repose of the victims of the Atomic Bomb.

 

The 9.7 meter high statue sitting on a 4 meter tall pedestal, made by Kitamura Seibo in 1955,

is a memorial to the victims of the Atomic Bomb.
