The Children of the Earth

Children of the Earth monument. North Cape.

The Children of the Earth monument stands on the cliff overlooking the Arctic Ocean. In June 1988, seven boys and girls from seven continents converged on the cliff to create relieves of clay with motives reflecting their creativity and emotions.

The children who demonstrated this way the congenital desire of children everywhere to have a good time and be friendly toward each other, were Jasmine from Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania, Rafael from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Ayumi from Kawasaki in Japan, Sithidej from Bangkok in Thailand, Gloria from Jesi in Italy, Anton from Murmansk in the (former) Soviet Union and Louise from New York City, USA. From the very beginning, they were called The Children of the Earth.
