The Arts of Peace

What a gorgeous day in Washington, D.C. today.

Took a little lunchtime walk to enjoy the great city, sipping my Dunkin’ along the way.

This picture is of “The Arts of Peace” by James Earle Fraser on the eastern end of The Arlington Memorial Bridge.

On the left is “Music and Harvest” and on the right is “Aspiration and Literature.”

These 17′ statues are gilded in bronze and are really awesome.

Not far from the Department of State and the United States Institute of Peace.

They invoke true majesty as you enter the Capital of the United States of America.
