Today, this important project received a major endorsement with commitments of funding and additional resources by Wallestate.com partner Fadi Karnaby.
Michael Perez Cow sculptures, created by Perez, which will be strategically placed in thirteen sites of conflict throughout the world. Some of the planned sites are Los Angeles, Jerusalem, Johannesburg and New York. Each of the representative pieces will be approximately five feet high, standing atop a ten-foot base to create a fifteen-foot monument. They will be cast in a mixture of stainless steel casting and titanium colored paint.
