A contemporary garden sculpture, Khiva is Simon’s latest design. It’s a design that differs from much of his other work featuring a pattern that is more random. His designs are usually quite structured in layout.
The design of the sculpture was inspired by trip to Uzbekistan and seeing the stunning mosaics that decorate the ancient buildings of Uzbekistan’s silk road towns of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand.
The mosaic patterns found on the buildings form the basis for the design of this sculpture named after the town of Khiva.
