About

Pedro Reyes Chair model “Metate II” From Tripod series Manufactured by Pedro Reyes Mexico, 2018 Volcanic stone Measurements 45 cm x 58 cm x 79h cm 17.71 in x 27.51h in Concept Tripod Series is based in Mexican tribal objects. Most pottery and stone artefacts from pre columbian times had three legs. Unless you had an even surface as a floor, one leg would be loose, and great stability was needed. Reyes takes this principle into these modern designs. The material Reyes employs in these sculptures further the careful attention to ancestry. Volcanic stone is an integral role in the shaping of Mexico’s landscape and its deep connection to the diet of its inhabitants, used for millennia to grind corn in metates and molcajetes, the traditional Mexican version of the mortar and pestle.
