Hiroshima Departed by Ronald Rae (1985)

The third piece of Ronald Rae sculptures in the parks can be found in the grounds of the Buddhist Temple. Donated in 2007 to the Temple, the piece is carved from granite in memory of those who died at Hiroshima. This sculpture warns of the tragedy of nuclear war. Every year on the 6th August, Hiroshima Day, the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist monks and nuns organise a floating lantern memorial service at the lakeside.
