It was believed in some ancient cultures like in Ancient Egypt, that when people cease
to exist, it’s only for a temporary time, It’s just a journey to another world where they
would lead a new life. So, they would put all things they had used when they were
alive in the chamber where they rest, to use it in the afterlife...They designed everything
in a way to live forever.
My sculpture series ‘The bearer’ is a ship-like that delivers the mummy and its needs to
the life of immortality.
I’m always inspired by things representing immortality, rebirth, and regeneration.
I got my inspiration for this series from the Egyptian chambers that are found all
over the world filling museums.
There are these incredible sarcophaguses that had eyes painted on them. The eyes are to
tell that “the mummy watches the outside till it’s back there”.
