Acclaimed Iraqi artist Dia al-Azzawi’s latest sculpture, titled 'Hanging Gardens of Babel', has been unveiled at the Museum of Islamic Art Park.
The iconic artwork is a homage to ancient Iraq and refers to the self-destruction of human civilisation, Qatar Museums has said in a statement.
The sculpture follows al-Azzawi’s major exhibition, ‘I am the cry, who will give voice to me? * Dia al-Azzawi: A Retrospective (from 1963 until tomorrow)’, which was on show simultaneously at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art and the QM Gallery Al Riwaq earlier this year.
In addition, al-Azzawi has two iconic sculptures on show at Hamad International Airport, which celebrate travelling in the modern age.
