A DVD of the creation of the CREDO sculpture in Hampton is now available through the Town Visitor Centre. Call (506) 832-6111 for more details.
The monument on the town's courthouse lawn celebrates the life and accomplishments of John Peters Humphrey, principal drafter of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. He was born in Hampton in 1905, and was buried there after his death in 1995.
The sculpture features Humphrey as both a boy and a man, sitting on a bench, while two stone pillars with excerpts of the Declaration stand watch beside them.
The DVD follows the work of artists Kathy Hooper, wood carver Darren Byers and stonemason Ludwif Hartmann as they develop their ideas from the page to the finished product.
Proceeds from the sales of the DVD, and a book on the Declaration produced in partnership with Amnesty International, will go to the John Peters Humphrey Foundation.
