Description

Granite globe with 202 doves carved across its surface, in the pavement around it are the words "you were robbed of life your spirit enriches ours. It was designed by Gary Breeze and the carving was undertaken by Martin Cook and Gary Breeze.
Martin Cook explained its symbolism thus:
All of the 202 doves are unique, to represent each life lost and as symbols for peace. The globe shows how the victims came from all parts of the world and how indiscriminate terrorism is.

Behind the sphere is a wall with the names of all the victims.
