  • Details

    102100  |  UNITED STATES. XXX FIDEM bronze Medal. Issued 2007. "Rebuild/Replenish"; the official medal for the congress held in Colorado Springs (95mm x 92mm, 12h). "Puzzle" shaped. By S. Peters.


    Male side: construction worker in hard hat, holding hammer and nail; across his pants, XXX FIDEM CONGRESS / Colorado Springs / 2007 in three lines / Female side: planter in headcloth, holding basket of seedlings. Edge: Plain.


    As made. Light bronze surfaces, with some darker hues in the recesses.


    An immensely impressive and ambitious type, this official medal for the FIDEM Congress in Colorado Springs was designed with the congress's theme in mind, that of "Passages to Reconstruction." As such, it was a nod to the then-recent aftermath of hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Indonesia from a few years prior. Given its intriguing "puzzle"-like shape, multiple examples of the medal can be placed together in an interlocking fashion to form an even larger piece of art.
