Heroes of Peace

With the “Heroes of Peace” installation, Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds) is dedicating one of its Chambers of Wonder to the theme of peace, honoring the vision of the artist and curator André Heller and producer Christian Bauer. The installation invites visitors to pause for a moment, to think about life, and how each of us can make our own contribution to peace.
