This project is a tribute to traditional Adobe architecture and was exhibited at the National museum of Bamako, Mali. The sculptures architectural shape is an amalgamation between a house and a book. The house symbolizes the container of humanity, and the roof formed as an open book symbolizing universal knowledge. The roof was formed by two big mirrors, reflecting the movement of the sky, linking the work to a sacral manuscript dictated from heaven. The sculpture is built with local unfired clay in Bamako, designated to slowly disintegrate, and to be transformed back to nature. The fragility of the material, reminds us of limitation in time. The symbolism connects directly to the thousand of fragile hand written manuscripts in Timbuktu, describing great civilizations, kept in custody for many centuries in secret libraries hidden in the desert.

Material: Sun dried clay and mirror.
