Created in a lonely time, I was
intrigued with exploring a visual
representation of the concept of
maintaining an internal sense of
self love and appreciation.

When closed, this piece is a
plain white rustic box with
hardware and wires, and the
word "Storage" stenciled in gray
on the lid.  When opened, a
private fantasy oasis of sensual
colors, patterns and textures is
revealed.  My favorite view of this
piece is in the dark when the
only illumination is the flickering
candle bulb inside the tent.
