​This exaggerated replica of a Greek Nolan Amphora, originally used for storing honey, was created by Libertiny using a custom-made mould, incorporating different qualities of beeswax to achieve a patina of age. This contemporary Amphora – an heroic, neo-archaeological artifact – is cast in a material originating from flowers, as well as shaped into a vessel meant to contain flowers.​ The vase is reinforced with layers of fiberglass, mounted with polished stainless steel rings onto a pedestal which is included in the work.

Year: 2007
Materials: beeswax, fiberglass,steel,wood
