The work critically interprets the current canons of beauty, where women are too slim. The seat, designed for a user who takes up minimal space, becomes halved. The gold-painted section pushes the reading of the work to the extreme, making it easier: as a simplistic puzzle of a complicated and difficult problem to solve. The work’s title ironically recalls the canons of beauty of ancient sculptures.
