Tony Cragg Donates Sculpture to TMoCA

Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art on Sunday unveiled in its public space a new statue donated by acclaimed British sculptor Tony Cragg.
The gigantic 320 cm by 158 cm marble sculpture titled “Roots & Stones” was created in 1949 and is now placed near the famous conceptual piece by Karl Schlamminger in the museum’s sculpture garden.
“I leave this sculpture as a reminder of friendship, tolerance and my visit to Iran,” Cragg said at the unveiling ceremony. 
The ceremony attended by Cragg, Director General of Iran’s Visual Arts Office Majid Molla-Norouzi and TMoCA Director Ali Mohammad-Zare’ alongside leading figures in the arts, ILNA reported.
