Project Description

The Peace Clock

Built by Verdin, and located across First Avenue from the United Nations headquarters, Lina Viste Grønli’s sculpture celebrates the legacy of Trygve Lie, the first Secretary-General of the United Nations. The Peace Clock is a 17-foot-diameter brass kinetic sculpture that also is a fully functioning clock. Twice a day, the hands of the clock form the Peace Sign. Inspired by the history of the UN’s formation and Lie’s dedication to peace and fundamental human freedom, Grønli’s clock stands as a reminder that time is both fleeting and infinite, always offering the opportunity to achieve world peace.
