Sculptures of Helsinki #7

World Peace

The sculpture World Peace was donated by the City of Moscow as part of the Cities’ Friendship and cultural exchange program. The five statues represent the five continents and raise their hands in solidarity for world peace, above them a globe decorated by foliage. Designed by Oleg Kirjuhin and unveiled in 1990, the sculpture stands at over 6 meters tall.

You can find almost 500 outdoor sculptures, pieces of environmental art and historical monuments in Helsinki and they are accessible to everyone. See more and search through the database at HAMhelsinki.fi.
