Throne Destroyed by CO2-Snakes

CO2 here depicted as death-dealing all-pervading serpents. They have already brought down the throne of humanity.
As a sign of hope that man will reap a way out, he is surrounded by butterflies.

Material: metal, wire, fabric, wool
Three metal legs are covered with crocheted fabric, over which a blue wool thread is roughly crocheted. Individual bands of the same material hang irregularly between the legs. The fourth metal leg is uncovered and stands askew, the upper corner bent off.  A tube of fabric, meant to be a snake, snakes up menacingly in the dark. Three loops are reminiscent of a possible backrest. Pointed wires rise from the remaining edge of the seat. Intended as a further obstacle to being able to use this throne. But here, too, there are a few butterflies in matching colours, as a sign of hope that mesnchheit may yet succeed in banishing this danger.
