"Life Lesson: Wit & Wisdom" is one in a new series for me, each piece in the series is a tribute to a specific life lesson. This piece is a small, whimsical, 3d box assemblage incorporating an antique book cover, vintage advertising block stamps, porcelain circus figurine, embroidery floss, and brass lock. The tiny brass lock hangs from embroidery floss that is wound around and through the piece, representing the unlocking of life lessons through experience. The colors are an earthy mix of deep green, brown leather of the book cover, soft yellow and green of the porcelain lion, and the oxidized metal of the block stamps. Dimensions not including the brass lock are 6 x 8 x 1.5 inches. Enjoy!
