Eternity (Buddha in Nirvana) is a composition gathering replicas of selected famous Roman-Greek classical sculptures and a reproduction of a 18 meters long statue of Buddha in Nirvana from the Mogao Caves in China.

Eternity merges both civilization aesthetics into a monumental sculptural installation. This visual hybrid reflects various aspects of Eastern and Western history of art and religions, and more generally globalization. The work intends to immortalize the classics of great cultures and to fuse these various elements into one cultural heritage that transcends time and space.
