In a private collection
Larger boxes had more potential to create a presence and definitely a chance to built into the structure some secret compartments. I do not remember how many interior spaces were built into this 2009 box but they exist. These boxes, like buildings are built up of components. In my studio, I keep trays filled with different components like stairs, columns, archways, all ready to be assembled. I start with the lower levels and add the construction components to build up a pile. In England, those huge mansions are called a pile.
The Arc de Triomphe like empty space of this 2001 box joins the towers on each side. It could be the work of a maniac architect. 24" high.
The 1986 box was the first large piece to incorporate classical architectural elements on the flat facade. Twenty drawers swing out to reveal interior compartments. The beautiful rich golden tones of the Hawaiian Koa wood saved the facade from becoming dull.
