Christian Burchard, Ziggurat, 1992, madrone burl, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Anita and Ronald Wornick, 1998.74
Christian Burchard is interested in nature's ability to obliterate traces of past civilizations and to reclaim its territory. The terraces and imposing tower in Burchard's abstract form recall ancient ziggurats, while the fragmented, bleached surface resembles weathered stone, suggesting a relic of lost cultures.
