Artist's Description

From Wikipedia :

The Peace Bell stands near the memorial to the A-Bomb Children and consists of a large Japanese bell hanging inside a small open-sided structure. Visitors are encouraged to ring the bell for world peace and the loud and melodious tolling of this bell rings out regularly throughout the Peace Park.

The inscriptions on the bell are in Greek, Japanese, and Sanskrit. It is translated as “Know yourself”…The surface of the bell is a map of the world. Its “sweet spot” is an atomic symbol… The Greek embassy donated the bell to the Peace Park and picked out the most appropriate ancient Greek philosophical quote of Socrates. The Sanskrit was translated by the Indian ambassador, and the Japanese by a university lecturer.
