First try out of my ideas for inside my whaler /daisy box. Imagery painted, then photographed, tinkered with a bit, then printed out on thin paper.... the whale at the top inside the lid will be made from copper - 3D. Still early stages with lots of post-it stickers moving around with info, telling the story of Magellan daisy and whalers, Darwins voyage to South America on the Beagel in 1830's and the return of locals ~(York Minster, Jemmy Button, Fuega Basket - Memory Boat died before the return voyage), traditonal whale boats (pointed at both ends) Fitzroy also used to survey the coast of South America, and the traditional Fuegan Canoes - they carried fire in the centre of the boats to each new camp (Tierra Del Fuego - land of fire). Lots to pack in.
The box shape is inspired by a mariners medicine chest. Whale bone pieces found on a local beach are in a bucket of bleach - in preparation of experimental scrimshaw.
