"Pyramid Inversion, Old Kingdom, Egypt."
24" x 38" x 38"
The sculpture is based on the pyramid of Cheops from the Old Kingdom of
Egypt, Dynasty IV ( ca 2500 BC ), which at 150m high, it is one of the largest
structures ever made by man.
The interior form is derived from the burial chamber of the pyramid of Unas,
which represents the home of the deceased, and his surroundings in the next
By combining an image of the exterior and the interior, it makes apparent
what we know ( or believe ) is inside the surface. Hence it is an inversion,
for it brings the inside to the outside, at the same time, inverting the
scale of the two components.
