DescriptionCeramic sculpture consisting of five elements which form on the back a profile of the artist's head. The front, which is covered in gold leaf, is a Cubist-style sculpture of fragmented volumetric forms, depicting a still-life table setting with a plate of food, three bottles and candlestick. Overall, the piece is planar and geometric, as well as very lustrous because of the gold glaze.
