Materials: bronze covered with 23 3/4 karat gold leaves

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. M00322).

Travelling through Japan recently, Christophe Terlinden was struck by the unusual shapes of a Japanese climbing cage noticed in Kyoto. After his return in Belgium, he contacted a friend, living in Japan, to get the exact measurements of the climbing cage and reproduced the exact size, form and dimensions in 3D images on his computer back in Belgium. The present work is a contemporary representation by the artist of a Japanese climbing cage. Each ladder, covered with gold leaves of approximately 24K gold, is part of a limited edition of 19 produced by the artist.
