What is that a picture of?

This is the Carillon donated by The Netherlands. It stands between the Iwo Jima Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery.

You can learn about it here:

This simple dedication on the Netherlands Carillon expresses the gratitude of the Dutch people for American aid received during and after World War II. The carillon itself symbolizes the friendship between the people of the Netherlands and those of the United States... a friendship characterized by a common allegiance to the principles of freedom, justice, and democracy which has weathered temporary differences. To that friendship and those principles, the Netherlands Carillon is dedicated.
