'Peace and Justice (bronze Children Playing with Ball Symbolic statues)' by Margot McMahon
Description: Bronze Black and White Children Playing together with a Ball in the Park statues sculptures For sale or Commission for Outside outdoors in the Yard or garden or Public Park or School Playground, By the Perceptive and Public Spirited American Sculptress Margot McMahon. "The sculpture "Peace and Justice" symbolizes the 50 year passionate effort for Peace and Justice that have been the hallmark of Soka Gakkai International (SGI) in Promoting Racial Equality. The sculpture responds to an incident observed by Daisaku Ikeda fifty years ago when an African American child was denied the opportunity to play ball with white children in Lincoln Park. The boys who posed for this sculpture are African American and Caucasian, who live and play together on one block and attend school together. They have grown up knowing a more peaceful and just world in no small part due to the efforts to promote justice by SGI. The bud of the lotus blossom, a symbol of enlightenment in Buddhist thought, can be found throughout the sculpture in repeated forms that become the image of these boys and in open space between their torsos. I used the form of the lotus bud in the calves and thighs and the incised lines on the ball or in full blossom reference in a boy?s hair. The lotus bud promises the blossom of this effort and these two boys lives now beginning at age 7 with playing together. The sculpture, "Peace and Justice" is a marker on the ?history of the justice timeline? for how far we have come in these 50 years promoting racial equality. A reminder that our work is not done, is represented by their budding youth as we imagine what their lives will become with this as their beginning.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful." Sir Roy Strong
Dear Peter, Enclosed is photo of my lovely fox, placed into an area which I`m developing as a small bluebell and white birch woodland. I`m absolutely delighted with the sculpture! Would you please pass a copy on to Tessa (Hayward), with my thanks and very best wishes. Jenny
