“The International Maritime Organization has announced that renowned British sculptor, Michael Sandle has been chosen to create a memorial to the world’s seafarers at the Organization’s riverside headquarters on the Albert Embankment in London. He has been chosen to execute the sculpture based on the proposed design submitted – which is very clearly based on a cargo ship. Of his design Michael Sandle writes, ‘I have chosen a ship because it signals immediately and unmistakably what the Organization is about’.” (International Maritime Organization)
