Rededication of Norman Rockwell “Golden Rule” Mosaic
Following major renovation of parts of the UN Headquarters complex, a mosaic based on a painting by the American artist Norman Rockwell was dedicated on 4 February. Entitled “The Golden Rule”, the mosaic was produced by Venetian artists and has the inscription, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Presented to the UN in 1985 as a gift by the United States, it depicts people of different nationalities gathered together, and has become a symbol of diversity, inclusion and understanding.
Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson speaks at the rededication of the “Golden Rule” mosaic. The event was sponsored by the Permanent Mission of the United States to the UN.
