La pieza representa la exclavitud por medio de una cadena que pasa por la parte posterior del cuello uniendose en las orejas por una pieza circular hecha con roca volcanica (basalto). La mezcla de materiales economicos y metales preciosos nos invita a pensar y reformular el valor de uso vs el valor de cambio en los objetos. Read Less
