Those of us who remember the 1960's & 70's, will instantly see the peace sign. The hawk, a symbol of war, is perched ominously, & opportunistically, on the fingertips. The analogy being we must always be vigilant.
Japan is the only country in the world that has ever experienced the full horror of nuclear weapons.

an interesting monument, even if it looks for me more like kitsch, it is strongly symbolic and delivers a great message. A gorgeous sky, too.
Thanks for sharing
