The headquarters of this UN body is in London on the Thames near Lambeth Bridge. As I was in London I walked that way to find the sculpture that juts out of the waterfront side of the building. This is the International Memorial to Seafarers which was unveiled in 2001. It is the work of British sculptor Michael Sandle.
I used to walk along the Albert Embankment a lot back in the 60s and 70s. Going back there today reminds me of how much things change but also how much better we have become at exhibiting works of art in public.
