silver (metal), h 7.8cm × w 20.3cm × d 15.0cm × w 280gr. More details

The creature on the rim seems to want to drink from the dish – despite the fact that a monster lurks at the bottom. As the dish is drained, one finds oneself looking straight into the monster’s gaping maw. The playfulness and virtuoso execution of this piece reveal Lutma’s skills as a silversmith.
