Many poor stools made of walnut wood coming from a foor make one single important furnishing: a throne which turns out to be as well a chaise longue. Te editions are more than unique because each throne changes on one hand by applying different stools and different woods and on the other hand because of the printed picture in the seat-back which determines the “meaning” of the throne. Tis one, which is the frst edition, has been called Kamasutra because it shows a stone carving bas relief sculpture of a woman of a huge Hindu temple complex in Khajuraho, in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. It is one of the many sculptures, which were discovered in the beginning of the 20th century, and which prove the artistical-industrial production of the Chandela Rajput kings of Central India in the 10th-century.
Te picture which changes in every edition gives the throne its specifc meaning. You can try to make a game out of it: What happens to your perception if you put an image of coffee or slaves? What happens to the piece if you put an image of a moon, of black oil in the sea or a wrinkled face of an old man? Te throne, in specific this type of furnishing, definitely leads us towards questions of power.
