This piece was originally part of an installation of 24 boxes, one for each day of the advent, in our gallery window during December 2021. Boxes can be purchased with their original numbered door (as photographed) or a plain cover - please specify your preference by leaving a comment during checkout.
"The boxes are inspired by Victorian toy theatres, Eastern European animation, fairy tales, and childhood memories of making paper toys. Each box is unique, and is made using collage, printmaking and bookbinding techniques, with layers of opaque and translucent paper creating intricate three-dimensional scenes. The boxes can be lit from the front or from behind, creating a play of light and shadow." - Elizabeth Willow
