20 miniature sculptures, whose form and matter refer to Indian daily culture concerning spirituality, were crafted out of worthless items. The outlines of their ground views were given to an Indian carpenter in the form of paper cuts. He was given the order to create sockets accordingly, whereas he was completely free in his realization. For the exhbition in Switzerland the objects were taken away from the pedestals and arranged seperately, facing the empty pedestals on the opposite wall.
