Face Mirror | an original new work donated to the collection, courtesy of Caesarstone 

"I see masks as a storyteller or a mirror if you will, of history. Every civilization, from the ancient peoples of the Middle East to the Aztecs in the Americas, has utilized masks, and each mask tells a story. I became keen to create a mask representing characters from my own cosmos, one that combines fantasy, a certain playfulness, together with craft and quality. I decided to use mirror together with stone to create different textures and feelings, as if the mask were an old mosaic. Some parts have stone, while other parts show a reflection onto ourselves. Together, the two characters create an imaginary composition. They become mysterious objects, masks that tell a story from my own fantasy civilization."

(Jaime Hayon)
