Sfera con Sfera, or Sphere within a Sphere, was created by Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro, and presented as a gift to the United Nations by Italy in 1996. Many have speculated on its meaning; like all works of art, there is no single answer - each person must derive his or her own.
"Non-Violence" (also known as "The Knotted Gun") is a pro-peace sculpture by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd, designed in late 1980 and inspired by the shooting death of his friend, John Lennon. It was given to the UN by the government of Luxembourg in 1988.
