The Paxmal is a peace monument built by Karl Bickel between 1924 and 1949, in Walenstadtberg above Walenstadt, in front of the Churfirsten mountain range Switzerland.[1]

The Paxmal Monument

The left wall depicts the earthly life: a human couple in its existence and development, love and procreation. The right wall is devoted to the spiritual life: the beings who are awakened, struggling, and which keep growing. [2]

Karl Bickel was a Swiss artist who worked for the Swiss Post as a stamps graphic designer.
