title: Sea Monster
materials: paper, ink, brass, wood, acrylic
size: 2.75" x 3.5" x 3.25”
medium: intaglio and letterpress printed with hand water coloring
notes: The creature in this tale washes ashore like a force of doom, bringing tragedy and despair to the people of a small coastal town. The map covering the box is an intaglio print. The text was printed on a letterpress as were the diorama elements which were then painted with water color. When the brass ring is pulled, the waves move, the sailboat rocks, and the arm of the monster rises threateningly.
