Extremely important, and very rare Sagittarius bronze used in the model for the creation; “Celestial Sphere Woodrow Wilson Memorial”.  The Memorial features 85 constellations of the universe featured in both hemispheres.  The Celestial Sphere both for its size and importance, forms one of the major landmarks for the City of Geneva, for the Canton of Geneva and for the Swiss people nationwide. The Sphere is recognized worldwide as a symbol of hope and peace, and is among the finest works by Paul Manship, one of the most renown artists of the “Art Deco” period. In addition, the Celestial Sphere is placed at the most prominent place, the Cour d’Honneur, in the park of the Palais des Nations.  A similar bronze was commissioned for the Aero Memorial in Aviator Park in Philadelphia to honor aviators who died in World War I.View More Images
