Inauguration of the LHC

21 October 2008

The Japanese Vice Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, T. Yamauchi, draws a second eye on the Daruma doll to mark the completion of the LHC project. In line with Japanese tradition, this Daruma doll, offered to CERN's Director-General in 1995, was painted with one eye at the start of the project.
