Takako Saito – Leichtsinn – Schwersinn

Signed: Takako
Cardboard box with 2 wooden cubes
12 x 8 x 4,5 cm
Perfect condition


Wonderfully humorous object. The gray cardboard box contains two wooden cubes, each with the text : Leichtsinn (carelessness) and Schwersinn (seriousness).
If you take the wooden cubes in your hand you will feel that the cube with the inscription Leichtsinn weights heavier than the one with the inscription Schwersinn.
