The 2011 Love Globe - Presented by Yoko Ono
The 2011 Love Globe (Kaerleikskúlan), a special Christmas ornament, was presented at a celebratory ceremony at Reykjavík Art Museum on the 11th of October.
ABOUT THE GLOBE
The Globe of Goodwill is a beautiful work of art and a delightful collector's piece, but its contents give it its true value - love and friendship.
The Globe is a blown-glass sphere, with a ribbon of red - the colour of Christmas and affection. The Globe is handmade and every edition is limited. No two Globes are exactly the same but each of them is beautiful in its own way - just like every child of the world.
All proceeds will be donated to work for the benefit of children and other young people with disabilities. The name of The Globe is therefore symbolic of that which it represents.
