Initially, the sculpture was placed in the Strawberry Fields memorial in Central Park, NYC, across the street from where John Lennon and Yoko Ono lived. It was given to the UN by the government of Luxembourg in 1988. Since the original bronze sculpture was placed outside the UN headquarters in 1988, replica sculptures have been placed in more than 30 prestigious sites on five continents, such as the Beijing Peace Park, World War 2 Museum, EU Commission, Olympic Museum Switzerland, and more.

 

 

 

“Imagine all the people living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer

But I am not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will live as one…” John Lennon
