Roses of Peace – level 3

26-02-2019 15:00

One goldsmith from Argentina collected donations of pistols, bullets, and even parts of airplanes from both sides of the Falkland Islands War.

He is on a peace mission, by fusing both the British and Argentinian metals together to craft roses and other pieces of art. He aptly calls his project Two Roses of Peace.

Aside from his peacekeeping, people also know him for crafting presidential batons and the chalice of Pope Francis.

Difficult words: fuse (melt together), craft (create), baton (a golden stick which is passed from president to president), chalice (a large cup or goblet).
