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.”
