This is a mixed media collage & assemblage shadow box tribute to the State of Israel. Using a variety of materials to create the feeling of being home, this piece is a love letter to a very special place. The glass front shadow box measures 9" x 11" x 2" and was lightly washed with a sea blue acrylic paint to evoke the sea. A map piece depicting the State of Israel was cut from a piece of corrugated board which was then hand torn and embellished with various elements including a ruby red pair of shoes which, when clicked at the heels, hold the promise of taking you home. Inside the box are real cancelled Israeli stamps, a flag printed on vellum and other ephemera. A porcelain salt shaker bird is affixed to the outside top of the box complete with her own nest and jeweled 'eggs' in her home. Visually this ties to the color copy of the old Israeli stamps with a farm chickens/hens along with their own jeweled nests inside of the shadow box.

While this piece is a sample, given that it will be in an upcoming art show, I would be willing to re-create and identical piece for you. Please note that the Israeli stamps and other one-of-a-kind embellishments will vary from piece to piece. However, the feel of each piece will be identical.
