The object of a small shoe shine box is an example of a "thing". Kolář believed that one could "tear a thing from its fate or slow its fate. A thing is always torn from its fate whenever it does not serve its intended purpose, whenever its aesthetic value is superior to its function, or if we ascribe a certain symbolic meaning to it." The object was made using the technique of chiasmage. From the collection of sculptor Vladimír Preclík. Paper, wood.
