These magical small objects are among the least known works of this prolific artist who produced work in a wide variety of media. He exhibited his Sculture da Viaggio [Travel Sculptures], portable and foldable sculptures made from coloured cardboard for the first time in 1958, and continued to produce them in paper, pear tree wood, metal and in plastic. He stated: 'as long as art stands aside from the problems of life it will only interest a very few people.' These light sculptures: small enough to pack in a suitcase and take on any journey, so that we can all recreate a connection with our cultural world, even in the most anonymous of hotel rooms." Both remain in fine condition. The more recent one is signed on the sculpture by Munari.
