The sculpture above addresses the theme of universal peace. This sculpture consists of many objects of war and peace. Due to the composition and nature of the sculpture, the objects of war are transformed into objects of peace. These objects emit a feeling of wholeness and tranquility that represent world peace.
Man made objects such as a grenade, bullet, sword and green helmet symbolize elements of war and battle. By contrast, the ring and paper clips represent objects of peace. It includes a friendship ring that exudes tranquility. Just as the Swedes wore paper clips on their clothes as an act of Nazi protest, these clips also depict symbols of universal peace.
This sculpture also mimics the calm feelings of Crystal Cave which is located in Sequoia National Park. It emits light similar to the calcite formations which are found in the park. The man made or found objects are cast in translucent resin in order to imitate the feeling of the crystals.
Crystal Cave, Sequoia National Park would be an ideal place to build this sculpture because the marble cave has calcite formations. Because of these formations, people have been known to visit these caves for its beauty and spirit and they appear to exit the caves with a feeling of renewal.
