Text-Only Peace Pole
A problem with peace poles is that people who know nothing about them often find them uninteresting. I put this one in an art studio during an Art-Walk and some people spent five or ten minutes looking at it, a few spent fifteen. When they learned that the text was translations of "May peace prevail on earth" in different languages they became even more interested. I have been through that with it now for at least two dozen art shows and it appears to be more interesting than normal peace poles, at least to people who are not familiar with them.
Pictured here is a rough draft in 1/4 inch steel with translations just 28 inches long. I created it to flesh out the concept and see if anybody would find it to be interesting. The next version I would make with 1/2 inch steel and translations close to 5 ft long and the pole 2 translations high.
I have in mind a larger version after that with translations 10 feet long stacked three high.
