250g –weight of your heart (a set of 9 rings)
Year:1999, Material: silver 950, framed photographic image description: 250gram is the average weight of human heart. We usually don’t think of the weight of our heart. Each ring has the same weight of a plants, an animal, a bird, a fish, or an insect. The wearer can experience the weight of each living thing on his/her finger as a ring. Adding the nine rings becomes 250g- the weight of a human heart.
