The installation artwork "#Gwanghwamun #Arirang" is being displayed through June 30 on the north side of Seoul's Gwanghwamun Square to mark the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the 1950-53 Korean War.

The piece conveys the hope of 12,000 children worldwide for the future and Korean reunification. Each of the work's four sides has moon jars filled with children's drawings, and the tiles contain the lyrics to the nation's most famous folk song, "Arirang."

In between the tiles are the names of all 175,801 service personnel killed in action to honor them and show gratitude to the countries that helped Korea during the war.
