Totem Mortem Mortar by Martín Azúa

“‘I am interested in the ambivalence of an object which, when not used, has a second function close to sculpture.’

The mortar is composed of a concave surface and three walnut clubs which can be stacked on a veined marble base generating a totem. The mortar is an instrument which, with variations, appears in every culture. In Mediterranean cooking the ‘picada’ technique (minced or ground food) is essential for a wide number of dishes. But the mortar is not only used in the kitchen, also in laboratories or in the artistic field to grind pigments.”
