That is really a great piece Oleg. Sticks and stones. Very nice and gentle curve to the branch. Good work!

Nice olive branch.I hope everyday for continued world peace that’s why I am a commited European Unionist.
War does nobody anything but bad. And imho through a strong presence and coming together of countries throughout Europe it can only work to resolve our differences without war as a viable option. Alistair

The day we have destroyed the last weapon, will be the biggest day ever for humanity.
Beautiful piece and thought.

Great gesture Oleg and a very nice art piece. I always hope and pray for peace, but it seems that people don’t change much, only the weapons do. That said, I guess we should be grateful for whatever peace we can get in this world.

Thanks Stephang. Your words and to god in ears (russian proverb). In our country now even pacifism under a ban. Excuse for policy. We pray no war…
