Le Mur Pour La Paix, or Wall For Peace was the inspiration of artist Clara Halter and with the help of architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, this monument designed to promote world peace was inaugurated in the year 2000, yet surprisingly, it is located in the Champ de Mars park, just in front of the Ecole Militaire, which is the building you can see in this photo, and it is military training academy where Napoleon Bonaparte once studied, and the park was originally its drill ground, before being transformed for the 1889 World Fair in Paris.

Le Mur Pour La Paix or Wall For Peace stands in complete contrast to its surroundings within the Champ de Mars garden by the Eiffel Tower, and designed to promote peace, we felt that it was a real shame to see some of the glass panels cracked even though they were still in place when we visited it, like you can see for yourself in this image, and it just goes to show that some people have no respect for what this monument in Paris is meant to represent.
