Item Description

IconCaretDown

Based on the plan of round city of Baghdad from 762, this art work blends art, architecture and history on one canvas. Iraq was known historically as the “ارض السواد land of black” due to the lushness of greens and density of its buildings. Years of wars had burned both. The buildings became skeletons and the greens turned into ashes. The heavily fortified walls can not defend the city anymore as all what it remains is footprints that open the way to all that terror and destruction invading from the outside. Alone the house of power stand erected above the ruins. Pulled by strings of control from behind the borders, like a marionette.
