Lima Drib named this jokingly the Neo Colonial room: "Robots are the new slaves. They are exploited for all purpose, even by artists."
Stone slabs with vague imprints of necklaces serve as presentation plateau for processed pearls. The scene has been dusted, covering the pearls with a thin layer of white stone dust. The floors are being cleaned by robots. They are shown belly up (ref: hunting trophies).
