"Traveling Museum" ● . . . . . this is an 'ode' to Joseph Cornell
This assemblage is very kool! The wooden box is small 6" x 6" x 5". The outside is covered in vintage maps taken from a 1921 encyclopedia Britannica. The brass feet are vintage toilet seat hinges, and the embellishment on top is a brass drawer pull.
On the inside are 9 small bottles filled with things collected from my travels. . . black sand from Hawaii, beads from South Africa, sea shells from Mexico, tempered glass from a broken window in Paris, white sand from Malibu . . . you see where I am going with this. Very fun and interactive.
