Detail

This piece was also inspired by Newgrange. Along with hair, teeth outlive us. These two elements are traces of human lives. The chest presents clay pieces, some in the form of teeth, some with ambiguous symbols scratched into them as if this was the result of an archeological dig of a strange world where the familiar and the ambiguous are intertwined.
