Concept renderings for the Farhang Foundation's Freedom - A Shared Dream Memorial.


Seven metal trees rise up to form the superstructure of a boat. Their branches entwine to articulate a streamlined hull. The trees represent strength and stability. They signify the seven major religions, as well as the seven continents. This elegant boat stretches 22 feet long and suggests the shape of the Cyrus Cylinder.

The orbs can be seen as peas in a “pod” nurtured in the crescent shaped boat hull, signifying that the principles of Human Rights are essential to one another, inseparable and united.
