I am both strong and fragile.

Often, my reassuring presence fails to move you.

Keeping me with you is sometimes difficult.

But should I disappear, you will regret me a little more every day.

I am peace. Protect me… and I will protect you.

The Chorus: Peace

The Statue of Peace is one of the eight allegorical figures in the Chorus grouping and is located at the top of the monument.

Because of the height of the Ridge, this topmost figure is approximately 110 metres above the Douai Plain to the east.

It was carved from a huge block of stone.
