The great film prize
Sculpture designed to be carried in the pocket
Cast bronze 2.4 x 2.8 cm


The sculpture in the shape of a nutmeg is designed to be carried in the pocket; its small format demands the concentrated attention of the viewer. With her plea to sharpen the eye for inconspicuous things, Anna Paul also adopts a central aspect of cinema: the love for a precise gaze.
