I just discovered, this Egyptian artist (like an hour ago). I love the clean, spare lines of his sculpture, and what is captivating and powerful is that many of them echo the aesthetic of ancient Egyptian sculpture. Quite deliberately in many cases; some of them have names like "sarcophagus". Some are very abstract, and yet still manage to convey the feeling they are a human figure. Many of his works are in bronze, which gives them the warm, burnished look.

"Sarcophagus"

I don't know the name of this one
