Trying to bring them together... by 

Sculpture of people pushing one half sphere of a globe toward the other half, intent on unifications. This sculpture stands at the Demilitarized Zone in South Korea.

“The Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is a 2-1/2 mile wide strip of land, without any humans and machines that serve as a buffer between North and South Korea, and is surrounded by landmines, bunkers and crisscrossed by barbed wire. It was established in 1953 after a cease fire agreement that effectively ended three years of bloody conflict that took over 3 million lives during the Korean War. It is the most heavily fortified border in the world, and a peace treaty was never signed, so the two countries are technically still at war. Recently, the tension between the two countries is getting worse and there may be a war anytime due the nuclear conflict.”

    Nice to see this image from the ‘other’ side! In spite of all differences and difficulties, there’s a really strong, unique Korean culture and reunification is an idea very much alive in both countries. I really hope it will actually happen some time!
    Anyway – great shot!

  • this was taken on the south korean side, are you in north korea?!!

    I am not in North Korea, but I was there for a shortish but very interesting vacation. I’ve posted a few pictures – more will follow but most were taken through a bus window… (Click on the North Korean flag on my profile and you’ll find them :))
