This visionary work was created to commemorate United Nations 80th Anniversary. Inspired by the Native Indian tradition of burying the hatchet to signify a peace accord, Alex Soldier uses a tomahawk on one side and a peace pipe on the other as a proclamation to unite all the nations of the world to embrace peace so that the hatchet becomes purely an ornament rather than a weapon of war. To further pinpoint that peace always wins, this intricately conceptual masterwork features a silhouette of the Statue of Liberty and a UN symbol–a map of the world surrounded by olive branches.
The sculpture includes precious metals, primarily platinum and 24 karat gold-plated 925 silver with turquoise accents. The metalwork displays several variations of hand-texturing that is signature to Alex Soldier’s style. Length: 230 mm; Width: 100 mm. Handcrafted in New York City from responsibly sourced materials.
