1927, . , , .

When oil was discovered in Iraq in the Year 1927, the country then became known for its oil wealth, a quality that afterwards over dominated its fame as a cradle of civilizations for thousands of years. This dominance of economy over culture has in a certain way or another cast dim shadows on the artistic and scientific achievements in Mesopotamia.

In this Artwork, there is crude oil, which is a figurative embodiment of the dominance of oil over knowledge.

 

 Quand on a dcouvert le ptrole en Iraq en 1927, le pays est devenu connu pour sa richesse. Cette qualit ensuite supplant sa clbrit davoir t un berceau de civilisation pendant des milliers dannes. Cette dominance de lconomie vis--vis la culture a dune faon ou dune autre jet une ombre obscur sur les acquisitions artistiques et scientifiques en Msopotamie.

Dans cet uvre jai utilis du ptrole cru, symbolisant la dominance du ptrole sur le savoir.
