The giant Broken Chair sculpture is a piece of artwork in wood and it symbolises the campaign against landmines. The chair has only three legs. Its image has travelled to all 4 corners of the globe making it one of the 21st century’s most emblematic works of art.

‘Broken Chair’ was made by sculptor Daniel Berset. It was made in 1997 for the NGO Handicap International. Its message is simply to remember the victims of landmines and promote a ban on landmines. The height of the Chair is about 12 metres.
