Washington Dulles International Airport recently unveiled the “Wall for Peace 2011," composed by Washington D.C.-based artist Anil Revri.

Located amidst the A and B Concourses, the sculpture “enhances the airports existing artwork and adds to the enjoyment of millions of passengers as they travel through the Dulles Airport, a hub of international activity,” according to a statement from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which manages both Dulles and Reagan National Airport.

On display until March 2013, the 7-foot long, 6.5-foot high “Wall for Peace” features a four-sided LED screen that displays English translations of scriptures related to peace from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.
