The Raised Text
The text is made out of a type of stainless steel they call 316. It is more expensive because it has more nickel than normal stainless steel and will stay shiny like this forever. These need no maintenance and are built to last for millennia.

Planting / Installing
No cement is necessary to plant these peace poles. Just dig a narrow hole with straight sides (42 inches deep for a 14 ft pole) and big around enough for the diameter of the pole. It is important to disturb as little soil around the pole as possible. Set the pole in it and back fill it with the earth that came out of the hole (see Installation).

They wanted a cap that had something like an orb about it to make it look less like a missile and more like something about peace.

My second attempt at a cap for the Tacoma Peace Pole
This was the second cap I put on the Tacoma Peace Pole, but it looked even more like a missile.

The first cap I put on the Tacoma Peace Pole was the standard cap I use for these. But one of the people organizing the purchase of this Peace Pole thought it looked too much like a missile. One of the other organizers like the pointed cap. On paper this cap looked like the solution to satisfy both of them, but once it was on the pole it looked more like a missile than the first one. So I then made the third version, the one that is leaning.

Their Peace Pole is dedicated to their Sister Cities. There are 14 translations on it – one for each of their Sister Cities – a proactive way to try to make peace prevail.
