Iconic books are texts revered as objects of power rather than just as words of instruction, information, or insight. In religious and secular rituals around the globe, people carry, show, wave, touch and kiss books and other texts, as well as read them. This blog chronicles such events and activities. (For more about iconic books, see the links to the Iconic Books Project at left.)

Searching for Quran monument over highway

For several years I have been searching for a location and a photo of a monument of an open Quran on a stand that is large enough for at least two lanes of cars to pass underneath. I have seen this in the video "Islam" in the Religions of the World series by Schlessinger Media, but not in a still photo. Can anyone help me out? Please post photos on the blog or email them to me.

I believe there is one such monument in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on the road which connects the Riyadh Airport to the city.
