An African perspective – Seed by Marco Cianfanelli

Measuring 34.33m high, 9.85m wide and 8.55m deep, Seed is made up of 229 individual plywood panels with laser cut designs, telling the stories of people and places, and is pigmented with sand from regions where Standard Bank has an on-the-ground operating presence.
