toy soldiers art box

an original art object, art box –– collaged with vintage ads for toy soldiers (usually from the back pages of comic books)

5.5 x 4.25 x 1.5 inches (1.25 inches deep)

a fully-functioning (lid snaps shut) metal box (burnished), decorated in collage (with a varnish finish, smooth to the touch)

much of my art is centred around repurposing found or discarded things; this was formerly a box for a high-end USB

the gloss varnish is smooth to the touch

of course, as with all objects made by human hands, this box has tiny, dignifying flaws

some pull-quotes from these ads

"A tank is a crawling, armoured-skinned, fire-spitting, man-eating monster that preys on any helpless enemy! But it can be stopped with courage and daring––you're the 'live bait' in this TANK TRAP!"

"Fight again the batles of the old ROMAN CIVIL WAR––Roman against Roman! Or mount your own attack against a town or city!"

"THE BLACK KNIGHTS AND THE WHITE KNIGHTS! Form your own battle lines! Every fight a delight!"

this is a one-of-a-kind decorative box that is meant to be picked up and examined
