The creation of the sculpture by Iranian sculptor Behnam Akharbin Moghanlou was prompted by the poet’s verses, which speak of the exciting anticipation of the birth of a new day. The sculptor’s explanation of this phenomenon in white stone is no less suggestive. It stands right by the sea, in ideal harmony with nature, which directly invites you to stop and admire the birth or end of the day. A horizontally shaped stone block in the core of the volume explodes with cut-out details of geometric shapes on which the sun’s rays play. The statue spreads into the space with the lightness of origami, which promotes the impression of weightlessness, as we do not perceive it as a compact and heavy stone material at a glance. On the contrary, it seems that the first blast from the shore will take her far away, to the open sea. In his work, the author was able to summarize in a poetically eloquent way the peculiarities of the ornamental play of patterns of the rich cultural space from which he comes.
