Apparently it would have to be an artistic Peace Pole for it to improve your health, but The National Endowment for the Arts published a report last week that showed a correlation between attending arts events and having better physical, mental, and cardiovascular health. The thought is that any involvement with art might have an effect.
Works for me
More research needs to be done to prove a causal relationship between art and better health (maybe people who are not well just have other things on their minds), but if it turns out that appreciating art does cause increased physical, mental, and cardiovascular health, does that mean doctors could prescribe peace poles as preventive measures as long as they were artistic ones? If so, sign me the heck up. I'll make one for myself . . . . . Like how about one made from a patchwork of vitreous enamel (glass melted on copper) pieces.
Vitreous Enamel Peace Poles?
This process is extremely consuming, and I don't have spare time, but I could be adding thoughts to this over time.
