Be The 'Queen Bee'
15 1/2 x 6 x 4 1/2 inches closed
The main box is composed of two
interconnected chambered boxes with Jacob's Ladder covers.
Both the covers and the chambered boxes are double hinged
and open from either side. Segments of images appear and
disappear. The piece shows women rising above the ruins and
emerging from the background. Though women's accomplishments
are often hidden or not acknowledged, the 'queen bee' is a
symbol of strength, and holds the ultimate position of
power. Materials used are paper, board, cloth, cord, wire,
ribbon, beads, photos, photocopies and felt.
