Artist: Athar Abbas
The artist is interested in ancient Egypt and created this picture of the large pyramid with the sphinx, battered by sand and the weather, as well as people, in wood and stone, his preferred working materials.
The pyramid, sphinx and archaeological excavation tools and construction are made from wood which was carved into shape by the artist. These are two-dimensional so stand out from the stones which comprise the sand in the picture.
This marks a divergence form the landscapes of Pakistan, and the African continent figures in some of his work from this period.
