Amid the buzz of COP28, the ‘Throne of Peace’ emerges as a captivating marvel, drawing visitors to Expo City’s Green Zone.
Crafted from a 150-year-old tree weighing 2.2 tons, this ornamental giant chair is a testament to intricate craftsmanship and sustainability, a creation of local artist Sheikh Ali Almualla.
A Symbol of Transformation and Resilience:
Originally from Indonesia and now a symbol of UAE’s commitment to sustainability, this colossal chair underwent a transformative journey, symbolizing nature’s resilience.
Its weathered yet resilient bark forms the base, upholding the structure, while the seat, a polished slab, reflects light in mesmerizing patterns, bearing the tree’s natural imperfections and history.
Narrating Nature’s Story:
Andor Steven, associated with Ardeco, speaks of the throne’s symbolism, depicting nature’s life journey.
The intertwining branches and roots, meticulously carved into the backrest, evoke a sense of containment and tranquillity, embodying stability and peace inherent in nature wherever the throne resides.
A Masterpiece with Utility:
This masterpiece, not just an art exhibit, is a functional piece equipped with wheels for mobility and a hydraulic crane for ease of movement, adding a touch of practicality to its grandeur.
Its colossal dimensions, measuring 500cm wide and 700cm deep and towering at 550cm, provide a regal backdrop at the UAE pavilion, inviting guests to admire its artistry and message of sustainability.
