Metamorphosis is another attempt by the artist to recreate the great old ivy that grew on his childhood home. As a child, Errazuriz would use the thick branches that ran next to the wall as a natural shelf to store his garden toys. The final piece of this project was sculpted in Italy in a long tedious process, balancing aesthetics with structure, stability, and the natural functionality of a bookshelf.
