The piece is for the Peace Foundation and will be placed by St Pancras former churchyard (which are now gardens) which dates back to Roman times. The carving is literally a roundabout, with the world and all the continents carved into it. Surrounding the central area the word ‘peace’ will be carved in 250 languages.

On Friday the artist is coming across to Newbury to take a look at the stone and work out the best way to incorporate lighting as the centre piece will be lit up. We have also started work on all the pieces that will wrap around the world, each piece is have the word peace inscribed on it in different languages.

This is quite a project as we have to make sure that the words have been translated correctly before we start carving but now the work is well underway. It will take a few months to finish this project as there is a lot of work, but I can’t wait to get it installed, I think it will look stunning.

I will get some pictures taken of the work in the next day or so and get them posted as the work progresses. In the meantime you can take a look at the original design here.
