SpotPeace Statue

When the bomb exploded 500 m above the Urakami area of the city, all within a 2 km radius of the center was destroyed either by the blast itself or by the subsequent shockwaves. Constructed beneath the epicenter of the air blast, Peace Park's Peace Statue is a symbol of the park. Its vertical right arm pointing to the sky represents the threat of the atomic bomb and its left arm stretched horizontally represents world peace. The statue, with its closed eyelids is believed to be praying for the war dead.
