Pallet and its Representation

The representation of a pallet resembles a pallet, but is not one. A perfectly crafted pallet cannot be considered a pallet, but rather an illustration of it. The function is lost, the better quality wood does not meet the ratification requisites. The object still refers to the represented pallet, as certain details such as the distribution of the nails, the logos, the more evident features are carefully replicated. But it acquires an appearance which does not belong to the one of a pallet. At the same time a distance becomes evident. This distance makes place for the aesthetic of the beautiful representation, which becomes the subject.
