Made of pink selenite and Quartz crystal.

Anyone following Daniel Arsham on Instagram will know that the artist is hard at work in preparing for his upcoming exhibition at Galerie Perrotin in Paris called “THE ANGLE OF REPOSE.” However, the Snarkitecht is always one to flaunt new sculptures under his ongoing “Fictional Archaelogies” project from time to time on social media.
