NAKASHIMA
FOUNDATION
FOR PEACE

1 of 2
It was George Nakashima's dream to provide "Altars of Peace" for each of the seven continents on earth. Constructed from a magnificent pair of matched Black walnut, the first "Peace Altar" was consecrated and installed at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City in 1986.

The second Sacred Table, built to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1995, was made from the same monumental black walnut tree as the first and blessed at the same Cathedral. After serving its mission as a unifying presence at The Hague Appeal for Peace in May of 1999, it resides in the newly renovated Russian Academy of Art in Moscow to help inspire peace in the new millennium.

A third table, built and sent to India in 1996, has found a permanent home in the Unity Pavilion of the "City of Peace" Auroville, which sprang from the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, where George Nakashima was once a disciple.

We are currently working on collecting donations for a fourth Sacred Peace Table that will be housed in Capetown, South Africa at the Desmond Tutu Peace Centre for the continent of Africa.
