Photographer's Note

The original sculpture was created by Josefina Alys Hermes de Vasconcellos (1904-2005) in 1977 and titled 'Reunion', the title being changed to 'Reconciliation' in 1994. In 1995, a bronze cast of 'Reconciliation' was placed here at the ruins of Coventry Cathedral whilst another cast was placed at Hiroshima Peace Park in Japan. A third cast was placed at Stormont Castle in Belfast, Northern Ireland; and a fourth was placed at the Berlin Wall Memorial near the Reichstag building in Germany.

According to the plaque afixed to its base, this sculpture reminds us that ' the face of destructive forces, human dignity and love will triumph over disaster and bring nations together in respect and peace'.
