While planning this piece i wanted from the outset to create not just a unique miniature interior space but also make the roombox itself very decorative and pleasing to the eye, something you would place in a real life room and if you had visitors it would catch their attention.
Im still not giving too much away as the main box itself is still under construction but the top is nearing completion.
As you can see from the image above it is rather colourful and far from being your average roombox.
The Ormolu cherub is set in place on the top while the round inset cabochons of various semi precious minerals add a great sense of colour and mysticism, the centre cabochon is lapis lazuli and is inset into genuine tortoise shell. I intend to slightly age the whole thing so it also blends in with most of the contents of the box which i'm also looking forward to working on and adding the tiny details.
I will undoubtedly post more on this piece of work as it progresses.
Have a great week everyone. Tony
