A very happy Sunday evening in Geneva with my gorgeous friends (colleagues/mentors) Suki and Laila, whom I was lucky enough to have met and learned from while serving as a Human Rights Officer with the United Nations Assistance Mission in #Afghanistan (UNAMA) 🇦🇫in 2013. Time flies ⏳🦅
'Broken Chair' is a monumental sculpture in wood by Swiss artist Daniel Berset, constructed by carpenter Louis Genève. It constitutes 5,5 tonnes of wood and stands at 12 metres high.
The installation depicts a chair with a broken leg, symbolising opposition to landmines and cluster bombs, and attempts to serve as a reminder to diplomats, politicians, and others visiting the United Nations HQ in Geneva (Palais des Nations) of the pain such weapons cause civilian victims of armed conflict.
