Mirrored Ziggurat (Iran)
Climb the stairs to heaven in this installation by Iranian artist Shirin Abedinirad.
Inspired by the pyramidal structure of Ziggurat in ancient Mesopotamia, this installation offers a transformative view of the self.
The Mirrored Ziggurat acts as a staircase, which seeks to connect nature with human beings and to create union of ancient history and today’s world.
For Abedinirad, mirrors amplify this paradise, giving light; an important mystical concept in Persian Culture, and a medium creating an optical illusion.
This project has been made possible with support from the Keir Foundation.
