Originated from lines on paper resembling the volume of a shield, object Kisal (meaning tortoise) is a stool made of wood. In ancient Mesopotamia, the tortoise was a symbol of strength and stillness during great chaos.

Hozan Zangana was born in 1983 in Kirkuk. In 1998, at age fifteen, Hozan Zangana fled his country and applied for asylum in The Netherlands. There he studied at the esteemed art and design universities Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and Design Academy Eindhoven.

Hozan Zangana is on a silent quest to capture the cultural heritage of Kurdistan and ancient Iraq in modern-live physical objects.
