The work "Jeu de construction - Dépôt archéologique" [Construction Set - Archeological Repository] is a representation of an ancient city made out of blocks of hand-cut and hand-polished blocks of obsidian. They are very characteristic of the work of Anne and Patrick Poirier—ancient architecture and an archeological vision of the City with an accumulations of blocks, columns, a temple—all in all, over 100 pieces making up the construction.

The work is limited to eight signed copies, exclusively at Galerie 8 + 4.
