SA'AT : Les Heures
a nomad's ongoing polyptych
 oil and pigments on 1000s of wooden panels painted
in the Persian mosaic tradition while roaming around the world...
an installation in progress consisting of 40 sections, 
each section is made of 108 pieces and measures 2.52 x 2.25m

"The sky too has its changes, but they are less marked than those of the vegetation and the river. Clouds map it up at times, but it is normally a dome of blending tints, and the main tint blue...
The sky settles everything - not only climates and seasons, but when the earth shall be beautiful. By herself she can do little - only feeble outbursts of flowers... The sky can do this because it is so strong and so enormous. Strength comes from the sun, infused in it daily, size from the prostrate earth."
