“It is a challenge to paint something for an unknown recepient. So I chose to paint something from the real world. But sometimes, reality is not enough, so I chose to picture two moons”, said artist Vanessa Baird at the Nobel Peace Center Saturday as the diploma was revealed.

This years’ Nobel Peace Prize laureate was announced Friday and was celebrated at the Nobel Peace Center on Saturday. In her lecture about Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali, the Chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Berit Reiss-Andersen, commented on some of the critical question that was raised about the prize Friday.
