"The cube" created by conceptual artist Paolo Grassi in 2014 has the following characteristics: 1st side the numbers 5'436 and 5'437, 2nd side 5'438, 5'439 and 5440 and so increasing by one number on each side to arrive at the final number 5'450. They were made in 3 different patinas (green-gold, black-gold, anthracite-gold). Is an artistic art performance by Paolo Grassi.
It is up to the faithful collector to decide later on which position he prefers on a pedestal with a 360° view, but the artist's advice is to rotate them periodically.
A version - a single piece - of this work has been made, measuring 77x77x77 cm, in oxidised iron but without a base to provide an overall view.
