(Nicole's comments): This is a sculpture out of paper-maché and corks and wire. I actually handed in the paper-maché-gun with my application portfolio, so it is about a year old. I eventually thought of making a hand out of cork to accompany it, and the combo was finished by last month. It's hanging on the wall in my art studio in Karlsruhe.
These are some photos of my "China Cabinet" after 15-20 hours worth of work. It is 3x4 feet in size, or 90x120 in centimeters.
