This sculpture, "Expansion", is created by the renowned female artist Paige Bradley, whose explanation is found on the official website: "From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: A social security number, a gender, a race, or even an IQ. I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in, rather than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies? Would we still be able to exist if we were authentically un-contained?" Placed at the entrance of the United Nations Headquarters, it was a gift from the government of Luxembourg. The curved and knotted gun barrel is expressive of people's longing for nonviolence. There is a group of silent and anonymous passersby at a certain crossroads in Warsaw. The group of sculptures commemorates the martial law issued by Poland on December 13, 1981, when Polish President Wojciech Jaruzelski banned Solidarity and had its leaders arrested. After that, Solidarity began to move operations underground and the workers were gradually split between the ground and the underground. Sympathy for the people enslaved by communism is expressed by the sculptures. Shoes on the Danube Promenade is a memorial created by director Can Togay in memory of the Holocaust. In January 1945, 250 Jews were sent to concentration camps to be brutally murdered. Persecuted by the Hungarian "Arrow Cross Party", they were asked to take off their shoes before jumping into the river to die. After their bodies were buried forever in the river, the shoes left on the shore were the only evidence that they lived. The iron-made shoes were used by the two artists to commemorate the Jewish refugees who will never be forgotten. Travelers are several groups of sculptures on the streets of Paris, France created by artist Bruno Catalano with inspiration drawn from travelers to celebrate Marseille as the European Capital of Culture in 2013. These bronze statues carry briefcases and wear similar but different clothes. In the artist's words: What I want to emphasize is not what they have, but what they lack. Naming them "Travelers" is more like a feedback on the incomplete soul and empty life of employees and workers in modern cities.
