Sculpture (broken) Thank you dear Stephen Hawking. Www.faraj-tempo.de. Found on top of cupboard 3 under the counter. Includes an annotated printout sent by the artist, and accompanying documentation by Hawking's secretary.

Stephen Hawking inspired artists around the world who often sent their works as gifts. This is an example of artwork received and stored inside a cupboard of his office awaiting further decision.
