The Mirror of Judgment solo exhibit is both disorienting and divine. The disorienting aspect comes from the fact that it is one big maze made out of swirling cardboard pieces. The divine aspect is due to the religious sculptures placed strategically within the depths of this unique labyrinth.

Created by Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, the Mirror of Judgment exhibit guides visitors through the big four religions, which include Buddhism (represented by a Buddha statue), Judaism (represented by tablet-shaped mirrors), Christianity (represented by a kneeling bench) and Islam (represented by a prayer mat).

Overall the artist describes the Mirror of Judgment exhibit as "a winding and unforeseeable road that leads us to the place of revelation, of knowledge."
