A large Hunebench by Hozan Zangana. It is inspired by the monumental pillars used to hold the walls of the ancient citadel. It is made of wood and later covered in several layers of metal applied by hand.

The original name Hunebench is derived from the Dutch word “Hunebed”: the ancient single-chamber megalithic tombs made of large stone slabs.
