PYRAMID FOR PEACE
is a poetically simple idea, inspired by an article about the future of religion in our global civilization and the titles to two songs—“Come Together” and “Give Peace a Chance”.
PYRAMID FOR PEACE ® symbolizes the coming together of the three Abrahamic religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These faiths share common themes, yet have historically neglected them in favor of focusing on their differences—with tragic repercussions. Imagine these religions as potential allies, in a peaceful yet strong connection, working together for greater peace and justice in the global village.
PYRAMID FOR PEACE ® is a perfectly symmetrical design, constructed with equilateral triangles, the strongest of all the geometric shapes. It consists of three equally-sized equilateral triangles: one framing the Jewish Star of David, one framing the Christian Cross, and one framing the Islamic Crescent Moon and Star. The base is also an equilateral triangle, this one framing a Peace Symbol.
The symbol of each religion is connected to the other, so there is equality and inclusion in placement. They share boundaries, but the connection is continuous. Each of the sides is, in turn, connected to the base—the hope of Peace. If any of these sides were removed, the symmetry, strength and stability of the piece would be destroyed.
PYRAMID FOR PEACE ® appeals to people of all ages and persuasions, who believe in the possibility of Peace.
