World Peace from Nagasaki. The Peace Statue was completed in 1955, ten years after the

atomic bombing. The 9.7 meter high statue sitting on a 4 meter tall pedestal, made by renown

sculptor Kitamura Seibo who born in Minami-Shimabara-city, Nagasaki-prefecture in 1884.



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).
