Two collages accompany the object in the vitrine. One depicts the outside of the Berliner Schloss, which houses the Humboldt Forum. Recently finished, the reconstruction, with an exact replica of the facade of the historical castle which had been destroyed in 1945 by Allied bombing. The second framed collage pictures the modern atrium inside the Berliner Schloss and below the image of a work from the collection of Asian art, the sculpture of a processional bull Nandi (Shiva’s mount) dated to the 19th–20th century.
