"The Sense of Smell" key tray
Lacquered wood and felt. 12.5 x 16.5 cm.
This useful wooden key tray has been handmade by A LA PAR, a foundation that works for the rights and labour integration of people with intellectual disabilities. Each piece is unique.
As well as being useful for not losing small objects such as keys or coins, the tray is a joy to look at, as it reproduces some flowers and plants from The Sense of Smell (Peter Paul Rubens and Jan Brueghel the Elder, 1617-1618), a work that has been restored for the exhibition The Essence of a Painting.
