The inscription inscription etched into its stone says: "Azerbaijan - land of eternal fire, ignites the imagination, warms the spirit and kindles the soul."

The "Hearth" sculpture is a rounded funnel structure made of eight tons of highly polished stainless steel. The sculpture's curving form reflects the earth from its smooth sides and the sky from its gently sloping interior.

The installation is the creation of Azerbaijani artist Khanlar Gasimov, who now lives in Connecticut. He was inspired in part by 12th century poetry and 14th century philosophy from Azerbaijan, which since that time has served as a vital crossroads of civilizations, commerce and ideas.
