At the latest since the auction of the spectacular estate of Yves Saint Laurent in February 2009, it has been clear that precious objects are in great demand. The culture of the cabinet of marvels is being practised and nurtured with passion in the 21st century too. A wonderful artefact that must not be missing in any well organised collection is this five-centimetre-high trinket box by Ted Muehling. It is rather nondescript on the outside, but when you open the miniature box you look straight into a blue eye, meticulously painted by hand.
