"...A wall installation about the History of the Balance .., that shows, spread over 5 levels, the universal-history of the Balance. Its beginnings since the Old and New Egyptian Empire, to Hellenism, the Roman times with the Roman fast-balance, the mechanical balance of 19th and 20th century until computer age had been created by Iz Maglow..." wrote the Allgemeine Fleischer Zeitung in 1991 about the new building at Viehhof Street in Stuttgart.

The wall installation on the entrance level of balance producer Bizerba in Stuttgart presents the Balance in Ancient Egyptian context.
German Art Artist
Iz Maglow shows the Balance, as it was used during Egyptian death ceremonies to balance symbolically a heart with a feather.

The Art Installation in Stuttgart combines various elements like water, stars and sky, shadow doors, thrones, ..., that all had played an important part during Egyptian death ceremonies and other celebrations.
