“The Peace and Reconciliation Tree”

  • World Characters Symposium 2014
    • Carving peace and reconciliation in characters of the world,
    • we created a cross-shaped tree by intersecting two wooden boards.
    • Each board cannot stand alone.
    • Only by relying on each other can peace and reconciliation be established.
    • This is the true spirit of proper characters, the spirit of humanities,
    • and true beauty.
    • We dream of a world of peace and reconciliation
    • created by the unity of characters from around the world.
