Description

“This piece is part of an extended series of abstract geometric works exploring the legend of King Solomon. A mystical figure in all three religions of the book, Solomon sometimes represents wisdom and sometimes pride. In one story, his pride allows him to be tricked by the djinn Asmodeus, who steals his kingdom and flings Solomon into the desert, where he wanders among ruins for three years before returning to reclaim the throne. The pattern–here obscured by stylized drifts of sand–dates from 13th century Cairo under the Mamluk dynasty.” – Beston Barnett
