Box Number Two





The second box to be created.
It is made from an old sunglasses box and has been transformed 
using the remnants of a much loved but very sad copy of 
"The Senses, Instincts and Intelligence of Animals with Special Reference to Insects"
by
The Right Honourable Sir John Lubbock


I found the fantastic illustration of the jelly fish in the book and started to think 
about under the seaness.
The scientific name of a jellyfish being 'Medusa' 
I married the myth with the box.

Medusa could only be slain by looking in a mirror otherwise 
she would turn onlookers to stone.
The legend says that when Medusa was slain by Perseus, 
he laid her head on the shore and her blood
turned the seaweed to coral.
