curiosities: treasure box 4
One of few StoryPeople sculptures remaining in Kai's personal collection after the split. Reclaimed pine from Iowa farmsteads, with handmade wire hinges. The entire story folds up & sits within the body of the piece. Artist proof - entirely created by Kai in 1996
Here is the story hand stamped on the tin:
My grandmother kept a box of old photos in her attic & we used to go up there on rainy days & sit on the floor in the dusty light & go through them & she would tell about witches & broken hearts & how we came from royal blood & it was all in there in the pictures, she said & then we'd lose the light & we'd all go downstairs for dinner & in our secret hearts we sat taller knowing once we had ruled the world.
Shipping is included in the continental US. If you would like to see this piece in person, it is currently housed at Indekoi, a gallery in Bozeman, MT.
