Afghan Ambassador Said Tayeb Jawad is committed to revitalizing Afghanistan's cultural heritage, as the country continues to rebuild the physical structures destroyed by the extremist Taliban regime.

"Now that we have begun rebuilding Afghanistan, nothing can serve better than art to deliver the message of unity, love and peace," he said at a recent Afghan Embassy reception that featured thousands of years of Afghan art.

Some 500 guests admired a 17,000-year-old stone sculpture, artifacts from Greco-Buddhist styles between 200 B.C. and A.D. 400, Islamic arts and modern works, including one by a 12-year-old painter.
