In honour of The International Day of Peace

I share these photos today in honour of The International Day of Peace. They were taken in Paris, France on September 9, 2011. The Wall of Peace is far more beautiful than these humble pictures can represent. Created by artist Clara Halter and installed by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte the monument offers up one simple, beautiful word -Peace- in 32 languages.  We happened upon it on the Champs de Mars near the École Militaire when visiting the Eiffel Tower. Installed in 2,000 as part of Millenium celebrations this monument was supposed to be dismantled after three months and yet it still stands.

    It would be nice if they kept the Wall of Peace. I can tell from the pictures how magnificent it must have been to see it in person.
