The Eiffel Tower from Le Mur pour la Paix - Paris - France.tif
The Wall For Peace is a wall in the spirit of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem conceived by artist Clara Halter and put in place by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. It is around 16m long, 14m wide and 9m high, and its structure is all in metal stainless steel and glass. The wall was completed in the year 2000 and is located in front of the École Militaire, in the Champ-de-Mars, Paris. The word “peace” is engraved on it in 32 languages in 14 alphabets. It symbolises the continuance of time across the centuries; its letter boxes collect the wishes of their senders, as in the Jewish tradition.
