Ahn used clay and copper to create tiles representing "civilization."

The dark brown color of clay in the tile represents the color of soil when it is most fertile. Other element of the
tile, copper was known to prehistoric people and was the first metal from which useful articles are made. Together, these two elements are the foundations of the ancient civilizations which all of us are in debt to.
