Swords Into Plowshares

It occurred to me recently that a blog called Swords Into Plowshares should, at some point, include a photograph of the sculpture in New York depicting that very activity. Here you have it.

The statue was created by Russian artist Evgeniy Vuchetich and presented by the Soviet Union to the United Nations in 1959. It stands on United Nations Plaza, just outside the Organization's headquarters.
