The island of Okinawa was decimated during the last ground battle of World War II. Over 200,000 people were killed, soldiers, nurses, civilians, children, parents and grandparents. An Okinawan artist, Shinzan Yamada built this lacquer ware statue, which is over 36 feet tall and 24 feet wide. He had lost two sons in the battle. He began the sculpture when he was 72 years old and worked on it by himself. Twice, he fell off the scaffolding, injuring himself, but never gave-up on the project. When the project was completed, Shinzan was 90 years old! This masterpiece may be seen in The Okinawa Peace Hall. It represents hope for world peace. 29NOV2009 Museum lighting, f/11 1sec. ISO 100 Tripod/Cable Pentax 18-250@42mm.
