The Martyr Monument

The Martyr Monument

dedicated to Iraqi soldiers who died in 80’s Iraq-Iran war, Iraqis today generally consider it a commemoration of all the martyrs of Iraq, It was designed by the Iraqi architect Saman Asaad Kamal and the dome was designed by the Iraqi visual artist Ismail Fattah Al-Turk.

Martyr Monument
The Iraqi flag is in the centre of the domes representing the martyr’s monument heart

The aesthetics of this monument is represented in the optical deception of these two domes, where the person coming from the beginning of the street sees that the two domes appear as one closed dome and the closer we get, it begins to split into Gradually the two halves mark the emergence of something, and this thing is the Iraqi flag that rises to the top.
