Artwork to inspire poetry: A Christmas box

Christmas box

This artwork is of a Christmas box.  The original box was made of wooden cube-like blocks.  There were eighty eight blocks.  The blocks were glued together to make the box and individually painted.  A sealer was then applied.  There are hinges holding the lid.  A picture of the box was taken and it was computer altered to give the artwork shown.

This artwork can inspire poetry.  A poet could write about:

  • What could be in the box and the significance of it.
  •  

  • The idea of individual pieces making a whole.
  •  

  • The idea of tradition, as shown by the red and green coloration.
  •  

  • The idea of making something by hand.
  •  

  • The idea of gifts.
