This is the latest installation work by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei which consists of 886 wooden antique stools called Bang. For centuries in China it was common for families to have at least one of these handcrafted 3-leg stools for use in the home that was often passed down through generations. As the country has developed, the stools have quickly been replaced by plastic and metal alternatives. Image
