Marble carving is a technique that holds a prominent place in the history of art making. Dating back from Mesopotamia, where marble was used to create crude models of animals and figures (both naturalistic and anthropomorphic) to Egypt and later to Greeks, Romans and the glorious renaissance. Working with the traditional methods of marble carving and combining it with the more modern mediums of laser scoring and digital UV printing, Nabeel plan to contribute in the traditional methods of sculpture making. The research for this body of work revolves around collecting marble from various parts of the country and carving books which is a medium of recording information and images. Although the books are realistic and invites one to touch and hold but the weight and hardness doesn’t allow you to go through them, hence a commentary on the current socio political and economic issues of the society we live in.
