Art Description

Sculpture: 3D Sculpting on Glass, Other.

One of Karl's architecture projects at his Studio in 2016 was the masterplan for the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site in London. Working on site and falling in love with the buildings by Wren and Hawksmoor got him thinking about all the UNESCO world heritage sites he has not yet visited in the world.

Sadly, one such UNESCO site in Syria was largely destroyed during the civil war; 2000 years of history just swept away.

"It's another one of those occasions where I struggle to vocalise how it makes me feel... so I made something"

Remembering the destroyed Temple of Baal at the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Syria. The piece is hand-made from 3000 1:100 scale architectural figures
