A team of Egyptian sculptors unveiled on Saturday in the presence of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi a collection of sculptures titled Reviving Humanity at the World Youth Forum (WYF) in Sharm El-Sheikh.

The collection was created as a result of the Reviving Humanity Symposium, which brought together 72 artists from around the world to create small sculptures inspired by the human heart, each artist in his own style and preferred medium.

The symposium and the resulting project were curated by Yasser Gad, with sculptor Ahmed Magdy as executive curator, whose work is also featured in the collection as Egypt’s representative. The display is designed by Shaimaa Abulkheir.

The WYF unveiled the first phase of this long-term project with work from 72 artists, while the full collection will eventually feature 195 artists, each from a different country.

The project seeks to inspire the world to unite, and remember our shared humanity at a time when war and acts of terror have become widespread. The heart was chosen as a symbol of love, kindness, and connection.
