Lol I couldn’t find a picture to which I could relate more than this one. This one goes out to all the bosses who don’t recognize, motivate or appreciate their employees (including mine).
“One of the finest achievements of European furniture making, this cabinet is the most important product from Abraham (1711–1793) and David Roentgen’s (1743–1807) workshop. A writing cabinet crowned with a chiming clock, it features finely designed marquetry panels and elaborate mechanisms that allow for doors and drawers to be opened automatically at the touch of a button. Owned by King Frederick William II, the Berlin cabinet is uniquely remarkable for its ornate decoration, mechanical complexity, and sheer size.
This cabinet is from Kunstgewerbemuseum, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, and is on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in the exhibition Extravagant Inventions: The Princely Furniture of the Roentgens:http://www.metmuseum.org/en/exhibitio…

A picture is sometimes worth a thousand words. I believe this is the case with this great sketch made by Mazen Kerbaj in memory of the journalist and writer Samir Kassir who was assassinated on June 2 back in 2005.
