Artist Comentary of Work:

The most expensive mosque ever built. I love this place, I feel very peaceful in the mosque. This is a play on sand and gold and wealth. We all return to sand. We all are born and we all die. Everything is ephemeral, in short the cycle of life. We make things permanent, we create these attachments and then we defend them but at the end of the day we return to the sand. This is perhaps a metaphor for understanding wealth.
