Piranesi "Prisons" Series #3
2010 Size H: 11 in W: 18 in D: 12 in Weight: 4 lb
Available for Purchase
This is the third box in my series inspired by the etchings of imaginary prisons by Giovanni-Battista Piranesi, and is closely based on etching # 12 of the series. Here I try to capture the heavy, subterranean, stageset-like feeling of that etching. There are five compartments under the floor, including one secret compartment. The woods are crotch and regular mahogany.
This image is a close-up which approximates the view in the specific etching this piece is based on.
