We can see three examples of a word 'vault' here, three it's planes and three textures. The first one is a vault for the safekeeping of valuables of the State Hermitage, it is mainly yellow. It is the new strongroom and it is still covered by scaffolds. The truck is an official car for the transporting of precious historical and cultural items. The second vault is the graphite arch of this building decorated by the patterns of the tribes of different epochs and continents. Both vaults lie beneath the vault of heaven, blue sky of the early autumn 2012 in St.Petersburg, sky of this planet.

Location: The Art Restoration and Storage Centre of the State Hermitage, S.Petersburg
