Wood Wall Sculpture
Created by Peter Loh
Located in Mali on the African continent, Timbuktu is an ancient city with a long history. The old city is a maze of narrow winding streets and buildings constructed as a response to the challenging environment that is the Sahara desert. Timbuktu, is a wall sculpture based on a section of the old city. A segment of figured Anegre wood represents the dirt streets and panels of western walnut with koa accents represent the buildings of the city. Several of these panels reveal storage spaces mimicking the odd shapes of the city's rooftops. Limited edition of 10.
