This artwork is in the garden representing Russia in the International Peace Gardens. The garden was dedicated in September 1987. In October the garden was visited by Russian officials and two trees indigenous to their country were planted in their honor. In 1991 the sculpture Peace Cradle, by Utah artist Dennis Smith, was erected in memory of Mr. Lowell Turner, the leading Utah proponent of better Soviet-U.S. relations. In 1989, Turner helped establish the Soviet city of Chernovtsy – in the Ukraine – as Salt Lake’s sister city.
