About this project
Public Art for Peace builds community
Our vision is to create the first HOLOS sculpture as a public artwork that ideally inspires communities around the world to declare themselves International Cities of Peace. Imagine with me... bringing a HOLOS sculpture to your community with the intention of creating more peace and unity. HOLOS symbolizes our one shared humanity. The goal is to install the HOLOS sculpture by International Peace Day, September 21, 2015. The first HOLOS sculpture is planned for the city of Ojai, CA. I'm asking for your support to help make this happen.
Building a culture of peace in our communities will benefit us all. When we shift from fear and separation to unity and love, the benefits begin within ourselves and radiate out to our friends, our family, and into our community.
- Crime Reduction
- Violence Reduction
- Improved Economic Performance
- Improved Education Performance
- Enhanced Government Performance
HOLOS as a public art sculpture will benefit our communities. Peace is a strength within each of us. Let peace guide us to more harmonious community ways of living on this precious planet Earth.
I am ALL-IN and fully committed to bring this about. I invite you to partner with me in peacebuilding and I seek your support. Let's create the first HOLOS public art sculpture -- together.
The HOLOS design starts with the torus geometry of a "Life-Saver". Peace will save many lives so the life-saver geometry felt appropriate. 9 spirals radiate around, and are returning endlessly to, the hub. This endless spiral design is the source of free energy, and can be a rejuvenator of hope for humanity and a joy to those who view or wear it.
HOLOS in the Ancient Greek language means whole and complete, as is our True Nature. 9 represents, in many traditions, perfection and completion.
- HOLOS - 9 Spirals - each separate - yet essential to the whole
- HOLOS - a rejuvenator of hope for humanity
- HOLOS - transcending language, religion, politics & other divisions
- HOLOS - symbol for One Humanity

Risks and challenges
The challenges of our time call on us to act in unity for peace. We are, whether directly or indirectly, at risk every day from the destructive results of violence. Creating the HOLOS sculpture for cities of peace is a positive step towards transmuting these challenges and risks into benefits and upliftment for all. I have dedicated my life to addressing this challenging work with inspiration and positivity.
I have found the right company to create this design using 3D metal printing. I have already produced the rewards in small production runs and so I know that you will love what you receive for your backer dollars.
The first challenge is getting sufficient financial backing to meet the costs required to fabricate and install the first HOLOS public sculpture. It costs over half of pledges to fulfill the rewards. I will work to get the very best pricing from both the manufacturer of the public art HOLOS, as well as the rewards. Thank you for helping share this initiative far and wide and build a community in support of peace.
Please note that as I am relying on manufacturers to make some of my rewards and the HOLOS sculpture, there might be delays outside of my control. If so I will communicate with you, and tell you when you can expect delivery of your rewards. I am a man of my word and live with integrity. When I set out to do something, I complete it on time or ahead of time. This is how I will respect all backer rewards. Thank you in advance for your support. Peace in all directions.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
