A 2 minute view of the Arch of Reunification, a sculptural arch located in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. It was constructed in 2001 to commemorate Korean reunification proposals put forward by Kim Il-sung. The concrete arch straddles the multi-laned Reunification Highway leading from Pyongyang to the DMZ. It consists of two Korean women in traditional dress (choson-ot)—symbolizing the North and South, leaning forward to jointly uphold a sphere bearing a map of a reunified Korea. The plinth of the structure is engraved with messages of support for re-unification and peace from various individuals, organizations and nations.
