About The Mirror House

The House of Mirrors or Mirror House, also known as the Khalifa & Lidia Qattan Art Museum is the residence of Artists Khalifa Qattan and his wife Lidia Qattan, both intellectual and pioneer artists in their field. The creator of the Mirror House, Lidia, is an Italian born arttist and writer who moved to Kuwait when she married her husband Khalifa. She began her project of single-handedly transforming their home into a fantastic work of art in 1966. The project was worked on intermitently until it's completion in 2006. The exterior walls of the house is covered with murals of mirror mosaic, each designe symbolizing a meaning. The interior ground floor, is completely covered in mirror mosaic from floors, to walls, to ceilings, with each room carrying a theme such as the "Planet Earth" Hall, the "Zodiac" Hall, the "Universe" Hall, the "Knowledge" Hall, "My World" Hall, "Corridor of the Nations", the "Shark Basin", "Sea World" Hall, and "Stairs to Inspiration".

The first floor is the Qattan's Art Gallery. In Khalifa Qattan's section are such themes as "The Egg" or "Evolution", "The Apple" or "Sex and it's implications on the family and society", "Women I Saw" and "The Prophesy" or "The Iraqi Invasion on Kuwait and it's aftermath". In Lidia Qattan's section are the "Art Therapy" Gallery, "Women and Society" Gallery, "Experimental" Gallery, "The Art of Recycling" Gallery and "The Galaxy Journey" Gallery. The tour ends again at the ground floor through the elevator to the Shopping Gallery where Lidia's paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and books can be purchased.
