This set uses Assyrian reliefs as references. Replicating such drawing is always a delicate task since they can become a pastiche when the attempt is to make them realistic. The pieces are made of cardboard, with different lengths and diameters. The way the light reaches the pieces creates the outline of the Assyrian design. Light and transparency are distinguished, becoming protagonists in these reliefs.
