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.
