Korone Kai Kai Verenga Uka

Korone Kai Kai Verenga Uka, is one of the pieces of my collection 'Fusion - Haka Piri'. This collection is bases on Easter Island archaeological culture and I have already presented in 3 continents (The Embassy of Chile, London, UK, April - May 2017; Tate Modern, Tate Exchange, This is an Art School Collective Exhibition, January 2017, Decorative Arts Museum, Santiago, Chile, December 2016 - January 2017; Aukara Gallery, Hanga Roa, Easter Island, April 2016.)
Korone Kai kai Verenga uka is a silver, leather and obsidian necklace (korone) with a cat's cradle, or string figure (kai kai), with a melody dedicated to a feminine spirit from Easter Island (Verenga uka), which personifies the laziness and gluttony.
