Photographic still life with clay pipes in the style of Dutch paintings of the XVII century


To emphasize the connection between Old Pal / Old Pal ceramic tubes and art and history, we took photographs stylized as Dutch 17th-century still lifes.

With a superficial study, the selection of things in such paintings may seem chaotic, but this is not so: they always had both logic and symbolism.

We tried to make still lifes telling stories about people from different professions, guessing at a set of objects.
