silver (metal), h 12.9cm × l 16.5cm × w 12.0cm × w 283gr More details

Everything on earth is transitory. This seems to be the almost ironic message conveyed by this costly object. The person taking the first sip from this tazza sees a couple entwined in an amorous embrace emerging from the wine. When the dish is drained, the merry drinker looks into the inside of a human skull.
