The Petra sculpture is based on the architecture of the Nabateans of
Jordon. Petra was a major trade route, and as such absorbed the cultures
of the surrounding countries, notably Egypt, Rome and Greece.
The sculpture recreated the impact of the temple / tomb built into the
rock, and at the same time makes the interior visible.
