Birthday Box – pic 6

2009

Driftwood.

About 1000mm(w) x 440mm(d) x 600mm(h)

Commissioned by a young German mother for her daughter, May Louise. It has three secret drawers (one is the submarine at the front) and a hidden money box (the fish tail at the back has a coin slot) I liked the idea of sailors dancing with mermaids on the seabed. I used some devices for the panels from a Japanese print artist called Kunisada and an exhibition of his work I’d seen in Prague some years before.
