Box It Up

I've been working on this box, "Paradise Found/Paradise Lost," for my book arts class for a while. It's a memorial box (kind of like a hardcover book but with a box inside of its cover) to a time and place that I can't go back to. I made the collage of mountains, then built a box around it, framed it with sanded down plexiglass, and then built a case for it. I use the metaphor of finding and losing "Shangri-La" to illustrate the concept of finding and then losing Paradise. It's been fun to work on, and I'm super happy with the result, but man, oh man am I happy to be d-o-n-e! (sorry for the crummy pictures--it's hard for me to take pictures of my artwork for some reason--but you can click on the photo to zoom in and read!)
