May peace prevail on Earth

I went to visit Het Vredespaleis. As it is not allowed to make any picture inside, I am posting today a photo of the fence on the outside of the palace. Het Vredespaleis was built between 1907 and 1913 and designed by the French architect Louis Cordonnier in Neo-Renaissance Style. It houses, among other, the International Court of Justice which is a part of the United Nations as well as the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Carnegie foundation (Andrew Carnegie financed the building).
The fence is made by a German iron maker. In the medallions we can see the pictures of Amicitia, Pax, Justitia and Concordia.

This iron fence is absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful. Some close up shots would make good posts, hint hint ;-)
