Art tends to be a reflection of self or society and that couldn't be more true when it comes to this mirrored art display that uses a full range of reflective elements to create an unforgettable piece.

The 'Mirrored Ziggurat,' designed by Shirin Abedinirad is a modern homage to ancient Mesopotamia. This art piece pays homage to the Mesopotamian pyramid structure, the Ziggurat -- a structure shaped like a staircase to connect earth and the sky and to bring the ancient civilization closer to God.

The mirrored art installation is meant to be a reflection of the self and offers a transformative view of today's world while also creating a union of ancient history. There are seven levels to the display that represent heaven and the mirrors themselves amplify the idea of paradise. The display is located in Sydney, Australia and changes depending on the time of the day.
