cigar box, various found objects
“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.” Roald Dahl
I wanted to create a box of treasure that Matilda might have gathered together. Each object with its own significance. Amongst others there is a page from one of her favourite books- Jane Eyre, a jar of kind words and photos of all her favourite authors watching over her.
