This one of a kind artwork combines my polar bear and aurora, hand carved, hand-printed linocut (available here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/94632660/polar-bear-and-aurora-linocut ) with multicolour, colour changing LEDs, and custom designed light filters to create a magical light box. When switched off, the linocut stands on its own as an artwork, framed (without glass) in a wooden box, covered with turquoise-blue, handmade Thai paper. When you flick the switch, the aurora, the Northern Lights, lit up, and start to produce every-changing, mesmerizing patterns of colour, with slow and faster flashing areas. The patterns are stocastic, meaning they are non-deterministic and unpredictable by definition, and hence I think you'll find them fascinating to watch.

The light box is powered by a 9 Volt battery (which is not included). I am not including the battery because they are readily availble, and so the item can be shipped anywhere by air (batteries are often restricted materials). There is a trap door in the back to allow you to replace the battery. The back is also fashioned with a hanging rail so the piece can be hung on the wall. It can also sit on a shelf.
