UNESCO honors Seattle sculptor’s work

On Thursday, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization will award Seattle sculptor Ulrich Pakker with one of UNESCO’s awards for “inspiring peace and humanity through art and science.” Pakker is being recognized for his 25-foot-tall “Breaking Earth’s Bonds,” which sits outside the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Ala. (No, Redstone Arsenal is not a soccer team, it’s a U.S. Army post.) Some of the things Pakker has put up around here are “Dewdrops” at the little plaza at 3333 Wallingford and the fountain “Trivergence” at the Everett Events Center.

Here’s a video of the installation of “Breaking Earth’s Bonds”:
