The Veil

Ground has been broken for the Louvre's $135 million Arts of Islam wing. France is home to nearly 7 million Muslims, the biggest Muslim minority in Europe. A shimmering glass wave, known as the Veil, will hang over the wing's courtyard. The piece is described by its architects as a giant glass Muslim headscarf "blown in by the wind" at the heart of Paris.
