From the 17th century onwards, the rich preserved their collections of stones, minerals and shells in so-called cabinets of curiosities. Lagast decided to do the same with her collection of stones found on the street. The artist transformed them into porcelain objects that she decorated with the Portuguese technique of azulejo painting. The elements that were once so banal are given a precious appearance and are displayed on pieces of residual wood. She covered some of them with fine gold leaf and thus become real must-haves.
