The ensemble, Florès, reveals the shrinkage of porcelain (seventeen percent) from its initial state as a figure of a young man modelled in wet clay, its reproduction by moulding, to its final firing. Each of seven generations (eight sculptures) is cast from the fired porcelain of the previous generation to produce the same figure, but still smaller than that of the previous mould. The first modelled figure is the size of a very small man, 95 cm (Flores man, hence its title) and the last moulded figure is the size of a doll, 29 cm. The constant reduction in size of this figure, as well as the loss of certain details and the accumulation of parasitic details produce a tension between delight and concern in the viewer.
