The “Hands Across the Divide” sculpture in Derry, unveiled in 1992, signifies the letting go of past grievances to make room for peace in the hearts of those afflicted by the Troubles. The sculpture, by hometown artist Maurice Harton, also marked a significant conference that took place in Derry that same year. Entitled “Living With Our Deepest Differences,” the far-reaching event was sponsored by Mutual of America, whose then chairman, William Flynn, went on to become a key person in the peace process.
