‘The Egyptian Sibyl’, A Large Scale Wire Sculpture of a Woman That Is Installed on a Rooftop in Cairo

The Egyptian Sibyl by Gavin Worth

“The Egyptian Sibyl” by artist Gavin Worth is a 20-foot-wide wire sculpture of a woman that is installed on a rooftop in Cairo. The monumental piece is inspired by the sybil figures from the Sistine Chapel ceiling painting by Michelangelo. The sculpture was built from 100 steel rods by Worth and 4 assistants earlier this year in a 3-month process.
