The sculpture "Create" or "ابدع" is inspired by the form of the spiral staircase. The ribbons of the sculpture wrap around the first letter, just like the steps of the staircase wrap around the main structure to create this harmony and movement.
The meaning of the word "create" or "ابدع" has a similar essence of the function of the staircase, as it allows the mind to escalate freely and circulates all the creative ideas within..
