This is a rare work by Wolfgang Laib in the form of a large shelf with works made from beeswax. The triangular forms recalls, in its archaic form, reliquaries from the Far East. Wolfgang Laib thus takes up a traditional form but separates it from its common function in favor of a sculptural dimension.
