English: The sculpture Reconciliation by Vasconcellos showing two former enemies embracing each other. It was erected in 1995 in the north aisle of the ruins of St Michael's Cathedral, Coventry. (Destroyed during fire bombs during the Coventry Blitz on 14 November 1940).

The text on the pedestal is in English and in Japanese. The English text reads:

In 1995, 50 years after the end of the Second World War this sculpture by Josefina de Vasconcellos has been given by Richard Branson as a token of reconciliation.
An identical sculpture has been placed on behalf of the people of Coventry in Peace Garden, Hiroshima, Japan.
Both statues remind us that in the face of destructive forces, human dignity and love will triumph over disaster and bring nations together in respect and peace.
