Just finished this piece last week. In a sewing machine drawer, covered on the inside with hand made red paper, I affixed a laughing clown head thinking the word 'LAUGH' in children's wood blocks.
A small crank music box plays the tune "Alouette"- a popular French Canadian children's song about plucking the feathers off a small bird.
The outside is covered in tissues and words to laugh by. On the back I attached a mirror and placed 3 wooden coasters on top to add depth and interest.
I apologize for the photos, it is a difficult piece to photograph. If you click on an image you can enlarge it enough to take a closer look
