Laszlo Tompa.
Lidded box/sculpture.
Stained American Walnut.
Limited edition of 100
40 x 40 x 40 cm

A wooden storage box with a lid. A cube is seamlessly covered with three different bodies of revolution that engage in each other, thereby producing a powerful, geometrical design sculpture. The decorating elements create an optical illusion—one would not think at first sight that the box contains a relatively large storage space.
