I never like the art work at the UN. But I like the reflection of the sphere.

Thanks, shoturtle and maggo85!

shoturtle, I hear ya . To me, I think it's because I feel like I'm not really looking at art but rather being indoctrinated at something...

(The "sphere within a sphere", however -- like the many sculptures I saw in the streets of Chicago -- I've no clue what it stands for.)

Ahh, the original sphere. Looking at your HDR shot I was wondering what this looked like...
Interesting sculptures. Yes, what the knotted revolver represents is apparent. But the sphere?
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, AaronB and Ordo.

Ordo, was it you who posted a similar picture of the gun sculpture? In any case, I added the picture below to show scale. It's really small.
