Zimbabwe sculpture in Missouri

I love Zoe's idea of sharing photos from our lives. I'm posting this one in honor of Pelagia from Zimbabwe. I visited St. Louis last weekend with my family, and we toured the Missouri Botanical Center. Near the entrance stood this beautiful statue, called Sole Provider. Sculpted by Joe Mutasa, it was donated to the people of the United States by the people of Zimbabwe in memory of the victims of September 11, 2001. What a beautiful reminder of how connected we are!

Beautiful connections

It was such a wonderful surprise to see the sculpture, especially when we were seven hours from home and touring the Botanical Gardens at the suggestion of my brother. We took a tram ride around the gardens, and one of the first things the guide pointed out was the sculpture, along with its history. I was so excited when I saw it...it was such a clear message of our connection. Glad you enjoyed it!
