Looking at more moving work by Wolfgang Laib on my last visit to New York, on view at Sperone Westwater gallery in NYC through March 30. On the left, Burmese red lacquer over wood. On the right, the large golden ziggurat is made from raw beeswax (like our Laib Wax Room) over a wooden understructure and, on the shelves above, boats made of folded brass are nestled in rice.
