Assemblage book sculpture -" A forgotten Time " A small vignette of a miniature house.

Small 31 cm high, 21 cm wide, 19 cm depth, book sculpture.

A small three dimensional assemblage comprising a backdrop fashioned from the remnants of an old book, which has been made into a miniature house which is worn with age telling the story of a forgotten time. Two platforms have been inserted into the book to form the floor and attic. The rooms have been embellished with lots of small details emphasizing the age and patina of the room, using remnants of ladies soft leather gloves and pieces of vintage leather wallets, old wallpapers and acrylic.
Leading up to the attic are wooden stairs which look worn with age by the passing of time. In a corner of the attic is a small vintage silver metal tin acting as someone's long forgotten trunk.
Papier mache doors open out showing three ballet style dresses, made from book papers and tulle which hang in the wardrobe holding on to their stories.
Under the stairs is a small vintage metal table with a small vintage hand mirror.
Below are a pair of ballet slippers made from book papers and special memories.
Behind the chandelier is a 3 volt LED bulb. A spare battery is included. The chandelier is a glass crystal vintage tear drop.

Can be used as a small night light.
Carefully and lovingly packaged.

Art figure Sculpture Rapunzel by the brothers Grimm by MesssieJessie

Art figure Sculpture Rapunzel by the brothers Grimm by MesssieJessie

102.00 GBP

Art figure. Wire and Paper Sculpture – 25cm high, 19cm wide and 20cm deep.

Inspired by the fairy tale "Rpunzel" by The Brothers Grimm.

A small ballet style figurine constructed from wire and papier mache. Inspired by the fairy story Rapunzel.
She has been papier mached to a wooden base. The dress is made from a champagne cloured taffeta and adorned with vintage costume jewelry. .The hair is shaped from silk embroidery threads.

I've kept the figure very simple, the emphasis given to the gesture of the pose, the tilt of her back and her toes peeping from under her dress which gives a vulnerability. I like my figures to only give a hint of who they are.

"Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
Let down your hair for me."

Lovingly packaged.

Any questions just convo me.
