United We Stand Sculptures, Chautauqua Institution
These sculptures by Kirsten Engstrom of Mayville, New York, represent women
of different cultures leading the way toward peace.
“These women stand tall. They reach out to each other. They bravely show us
the way to communicate. They demonstrate that in this world of great diversity,
there is a peaceful way to form community.”
The sculptures can be seen at the Chautauqua Institution
in Chautauqua, New York. They are made out of reinforced concrete and
high fire clay. Their names are Fernanda, Bah Hoa Binh, Aamenah, Frida, Mirembe.
