Box of Saturn

Assemblage, 23x12.5x9cm.

Date23 July 2020

One of 7 planet-themed boxes that were made as groundwork and practice for this collection. They draw both on my work with cosmology and on my study of Abbasid-era art materials, Inks & Paints of the Middle-East. The latter book was included with the boxes and contained the clues for deciphering the contents. One piece of information: Saturn is associated with black and lead.



A penny for your thoughts...
