A gilded chair with a top hat at its seating section, and a walking stick form the installation which Vaništa made in 1961. The symbols of aristocratic elegance were long been out of use. The very walking stick is long, and has a handle on both ends. The time of its creation aligns with the activity of the Gorgona group, which Vaništa founded, and in whose works humour and self-irony were common.
