The Lebanese Military Museum, dedicated for the preservation of old Lebanese military antiques, is located at the Ministry of National Defense, in Yarzeh, a village southeast of Beirut in Lebanon. Near the entrance to the Ministry of National Defense, is an enormous conglomerated tower of real tanks, artillery pieces, mortars and armored vehicles, sandwiched between thick layers of concrete. The 5,000-ton imposing monument that resembles a shelled building rises 30 meters and contains as many as 78 vehicles. It was designed by French-born American artist Armand Fernandez in 1995 and is entitled “The Hope for Peace.” It is a remarkable reflection of the image of a city which had long been reduced to the vision of buildings in ruins.
