Armed concrete, 35 x 35 x 35 cm.

If you add the shrinkage cracks in the wood of Zadkine's sculpture, the shrinkage cracks in the plaster of Varejão and the dilapidation of the dry cement of Lais Myrrha with the concrete sculptures, you get to concrete degradation. Especially at sea you have to watch out for concrete degradation. Enough ingredients for a block with gravel nests, decay of concrete, seemingly too dry or dismantled too early. To simulate concrete degradation exaggerated with good quality concrete, it is fun to make.
