*the central element is carved and covered at the back with a black fabric. ​This allows  the sunlight to filter through the work as a halo of light.

Larimian's drawing, titled I Saw It. I Walked Up the Stairs and Opened the Door, is a more personal work. The artist comes from a small town in Iran and is happy to have received a scholarship at the University of Visual Arts in Vienna. His charming pen drawing on foam board depicts himself as a child walking up the stairs of his university towards a bright future. The door at the head of the stairs has been cut out from the foam board with a fabric pasted over it to allow light to shine through.
