Bomb Barrier Art
Big ugly grey concrete walls in Baghdad, Iraq are beginning to come to life with art. The walls are to protect important buildings from mortars and suicide bombers.
Previously the only public art in Iraq was of Saddam, but now there's big brightly colored murals of picasso-ish people, historical scenes, flowers and plenty of doves... all screaming out for peace. See them here at BBC
