Sculpture of Peace Pilgrim
New Sculpture of Peace Pilgrim
by Fernando Calvo

On November 19, 2000 a new statue of Peace Pilgrim created by Costa Rican sculptor Fernando Calvo was dedicated at the United Nations University of Peace in Colon, Costa Rica. The life size statue joins busts of other world peace makers such as Gandhi and Tolstoy on the grounds of the University.  The keynote address at the dedication ceremony was given by Rodrigo Carazo former President of Costa Rica.

On the previous day an academic seminar "Personal Stories about the Influence of Peace Pilgrim on our Lives and Development of further Resources for Peace" featured several speakers who knew Peace and others who had been strongly influenced by her life and message.
