OBJECT DESCRIPTION

The image used on this ashtray by Vik Muniz is taken from Caspar David Friedrich’s The Wanderer above the Sea of Fog (1818). As might be expected, Muniz, known for using unusual materials like ketchup or chocolate to recreate masterpieces, has drawn the image using cigarette ashes and butts. He then photographed the image and had it screened onto a beautiful porcelain ashtray made at Limoges in Bernardaud, France. The rim of the ashtray is then hand-painted in silver leaf.
