It translates as breadplate. Bread has been a basic, main food for centuries, all over the world, in all cultures. In the traditional catalan cuisine, we can find the classic ”pa amb tomata”, which is a big loaf  of bread with fresh tomato rubbed on it which, sprinkled with olive oil, makes the perfect setting for almost anything you can think (or crave) of. PlatDePa is this setting or “canvas” to lay different  delicacies and appetizers on, and it is intended to enhance their presence.

Made of aluminium, each plate is different and unique, as real loaves of bread were used as models, and when put together, they form a whole bread.

This plate has been designed and created exclusively for El Celler de Can Roca.

Science Museum Executed Head

anatomy UK

This Plaster model of an executed Chinese criminal case was made in England c. 1910 and resides at the Science Museum, London.

Description from Science museum site;

‘This model head is reportedly an executed Chinese Yangstze river pirate. It is made of plaster. The long ponytail is real human hair. It is particularly gruesome because it depicts the head in great anatomical detail. Arteries, veins and spinal cord are accurately modelled across the severed neck. The head also has its own bloodstained carrying box. The origins and purpose of the model are uncertain. It was possibly used in an exhibition because it was made in England early in the last century.’
