The amphoras reference archaeological finds from past civilisations. They are produced using moulds however, a nod to our own time and the dream of infinite productivity and growth. Each amphora is stamped with the numbers 31-12-2019: the date when the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission first reported cases of pneumonia of an unknown origin. The cause was later identified as the Covid-19 virus in January 2020.
