re: Dubi Arie & The Mission

Landmark Design is pleased to announce it's direct representation and involvement with one of Dubi Aries most ambitious acomplishments to date. Unique in scope and unrivalled in proportion, The Mission, commemorating 4000 years of Jewish history, speaks to the struggle of people of all ages, and religious persuasions and was created to remind us all, to end the aggression that leads to war and destruction between nations and stop the hate that divides the peoples of the world. It is Dubi Arie's ardent hope that The Mission will impart deep feelings of unity to the Jewish people, and establish bridges of understanding between Jews and all of mankind.

Through new exhibitions, corporate sponsorship and public support, we are hopeful that this work's enormous artistic and educational value can be shared globally, and that a permanent home for this historically relevant work of art can be found in time for Israel’s sixtieth year of independence celebration in 2008.
