New acquisition

On Saturday I visited the studio in Old Damascus of Mustafa Ali, one of Syria's most notable sculptors, and a most engaging person. As always when I get too close to artists' work I could not resist buying something, and this is it, a simple wood column about 50cm high with small metal symbolic shapes set into recesses on the sides. It's very typical of his visual language, and I love it. There were many other pieces I wanted as well, but at least some fiscal sanity remained. All that remains is to pay for it, get it signed and take it home.
