Portal To Heaven - Paper Sculpture

2015

This paper sculpture is inspired by the intricately carved domes of ancient Indian temples the likes of which are not found today. They were often engraved with nymphs playing musical instruments and dancing in various poses. The scenes inevitably felt like a poem in stone that made the viewer oblivious to all but a feeling of being transported to a dream world.

'PORTAL TO HEAVEN' is my homage to such mesmerizing domes that truly are a portal to divine dimensions. It is made with over 350 layers of intricately cut paper and took 9 months from its conceptualization to completion. 

Its dimensions are 33" x 33" x 6"
