In 1933, responding to a number of requests, Man Ray re-made the object. However, the preceding year he had been left by his lover Lee Miller and so re-modelled the object with a photo of Miller's eye. Publishing a drawing of his object in This Quarter, he included the following instructions: 'Cut out the eye from a photograph of one who has been loved but is seen no more. Attach the eye to the pendulum of a metronome and regulate the weight to suit the tempo desired. Keep doing to the limit of endurance. With a hammer well-aimed, try to destroy the whole at a single blow' (This Quarter, vol. I, September 1932, p. 55).
In 1965, Man Ray collaborated with Daniel Spoerri to produce an edition of 100 of these objects. This edition he re-named Objet indestructible. Another example from this edition is in the collection of Tate Modern, London.
