This 8”x11“ handcrafted box was crafted from locally sourced pine with a Walnut or other dark wood spline joint , incorporated glass to protect artwork and is treated with a mixture of orange oil and beeswax to preserve the wood. This box has sawtooth hangers attached on the rear of the piece for easy wall mounting. The original art within is hand painted with chalk pastel on paper which has been cut out and mounted into the box using a variety of techniques depending upon the application needed. All materials are archival or treated to be.
As a child my own mother had a fascination with foxes. Perhaps she still does, but this has always lead me to associate them with my mother and motherhood in general. One a small knob beneath the piece is moved, a fox pup pops out from behind this Moma fox.
