History of Time
A filigree, ceramic wonder, the 10-foot sculpture History of Time is comprised by 70 fired-clay mini-sculptures that Dimitar Lukanov created individually by hand, over a period of eight months. The solemnity of the delicate clay pieces conveys the nature of the main sources of inspiration, the Samothrace Island in Greece as well as the timeless city of Jerusalem. The sculpture is a multilayered amalgam of openings, arches and walls. It is a stratigraphic wonder of balance where each and every one of the 70 unique fired-clay segments supports the next, above or below. Each segment is three-dimensional, so the sculpture can be observed from every angle. Adding to the magic of this piece is its minimal depth - a mere two feet for a structure as tall as eight feet and 10 feet wide.
