The objects embody symbolisms: icons of wealth and power, of religion, of common people.
They are icons of architecture, of culture and war and destruction. 
The objects themselves are abstract but the figurative elements make it possible for the on-looker to 'read' the message. 
Abstraction equals the freedom the sculptor gives his audience to read their own individual message. 
Art is co-created by the one who sees it.
The on-looker is liable to be lost in layers of meaning. 
The objects look as if they were dug from the ground, as if they were made a long time ago, but they are clearly made now!

detail

These are reconstructions of something that never existed. They tell of the good that culture can bring but also about the evil of war and stupidity.

The 'reconstructions of the remains of the holy grail' look old and yet futuristic. 
They are powerful. 
Their brilliant radiance attracts and repels at the same time. 
They are not easy to fully understand and the on-looker usually needs time to see and to feel the meaning
