This work is a fossil which shows how people in the Anthropocene used large amounts of bottles, flacons, tubes, pills, syringes, …. most probably to feed or to cure themselves. Geologists doubt that this can be called a fossil, because the items are laid out too orderly; as if it was done by somebody on purpose. But one: isn’t the spiral of the ammonite (Cat. nr. 69) not of a beautiful order as well? And second: maybe the tubes and pills were so important for our ancestors that they were kept in order to rapidly find a particular pill needed at a particular moment. The Anthropocene was surely a bizarre period, if you think that today, to feed or to cure ourselves, we simply take (or receive) what nature offers us.
