Wordless Wednesday - North Cape.

 If you zoom in the details of these monuments is in English on the right hand side in the above photo.
I was asked if I had more details for the sculptures and found this on the Children of the World website,

Children of the World

The “Children of the World” sculpture was started in 1988 when author Simon Flem Devold randomly selected seven children from seven countries – Tanzania, Brazil, USA, Japan, Thailand, Italy and Russia — to visit the North Cape to dream of “Peace on Earth“.

During their seven day visit, each of the 8-to12-year-old children made a clay relief symbolizing friendship, hope, joy and working together. In 1989 the reliefs were enlarged, case in bronze and erected in a semi-circle outside the North Cape Hall.  A “Mother and Child “monument by sculptor Eva Rybakken points toward the seven disks.

I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the blog hop.

    It's strange in a way that such a special monument is in a deserted place.
