Description: This is a collaborative work (cabinet plinth & trompe l'oeil by Martin Jarvis: www.muralslondon.co.uk). It is an interactive installation which plays with the subjects of time & space and Leonardo Da Vinci. A label invites the viewer to open the cabinet and a life-sized bust of Mona Lisa is revealed in a false perspective room - but what is she holding? The work dismantles and reassembles in 4 sections: bust, cabinet, plinth and plinth base. N.B. Due to the dimensions of the cabinet (788 x 788 x 1338mm) it may not be able to pass through some doorways.
