The Peace Caravan Project aims to nourish the principles of international co-operation, exchange cultural values, promote the understanding of the environment, and foster the equality of all peoples including women and children. There is an urgent need from people around the world for openness and cultural exchange to help gain the mutual respect necessary for world peace.
Artist Marla Mossman and her Peace Caravan Project are traveling from Jerusalem, Israel to X'ian, China by car, foot, horse, mule and camel to document places of historical and religious significance mentioned in the Bible, the Torah, the Koran and the Veda's. In a quest to explore her heritage and spirituality and the connection to Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam she has already taken four expeditions to photograph India, Turkey, Afghanistan and the Middle East countries of Syria, Jordan and Israel.
Along this route, often called the Silk Road, there is an imminent fear as violence and the encroaching modernization in the region threaten the indigenous way of life. Mossman is optimistic that by sharing photographs and stories from her travels that readers will find a new appreciation for the religious and cultural heritages of these nations and that a new way to peace will reveal itself.
