A small three dimensional book assemblage comprising a backdrop of the book. The story comes to life with three small birds captivated by Thumbelina and her kindness. Thumbelina is made from papier mache, her dress is made from beautiful cotton vintage handkerchiefs.

“The swallow rose in the air and flew over forest and over sea—high above the highest mountains, covered with eternal snow. Thumbelina would have been frozen in the cold air, but she crept under the bird’s warm feathers, keeping her little head uncovered, so that she might admire the beautiful lands over which they passed. At length they reached the warm countries, where the sun shines brightly and the sky seems so much higher above the earth.”

A tall vintage wooden mysterious box come to life from the inspiration of nature, beautiful chinoiserie wall papers and a touch of Pandora’s box.

A window has been cut out of the box and made to look as if it has been broken from an explosion of moths. The moths are made from card and paper, strengthened with wire and decorated using acrylic and a very fine wire mesh.

The inside of the box has been collaged and painted using acrylic to represent the antiqued worn wall papers. Two paper mache birds sit on the inside door, again inspired by the chinoiserie wall papers.

Sitting on a miniature wooden table painted with acrylic is a small vintage brass box which has been opened using the key lying on the floor under the table.
