Hope Guides Me in Arabic Calligraphy

1000 pounds of Calligraphy - Words set in stone and as the third step entering a natural marble pool.

Hope Guides Me in Arabic text carved into Marble is extracted from the book The Consolation of Philosophy/De consolatione philosophiae by Boethius, (480–524 AD). The marble slab was then submerged into a natural marble pool as a permanent installation. Produced during artist residency at The Marble House Project in Vermont, July 27-August 14, 2015. The marble slab is 40 x 10x 4 inches.
