Cubist and Constuctivist artists like Naum Gabo were interested in the deconstruction of form found in works like the Kota Ancestor Reliquary seen on the left. The human features in the Ancestor Reliquary were seemingly analyzed into their geometric components and then reassembled in flattened form. Gabo and other Cubist and Constructivist artists similarly analyzed the human features and reassembled them.
