Mirrored Ziggurat (Iran)

Shirin Abedinirad

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.
