The starting point is three historical photos of the Paris riots. In each of the images one or more silhouettes are isolated, coloured with powdery shades, a detail is chosen.

All this graphic material is transferred to the enamel on copper sheets in three sizes. The enameled sheets are set in lens-shaped mounts in satin-finish grey gold with a neutral appearance.
