Description

Prince Albert
Mixed media
13 x 11 x 5" OVERALL
The assemblage is constructed out of a box with a hinged cover. The edges of the exterior cover are covered in thorn. The interior cover is gray, and in the center is a circular transparent orb, the inside of which holds a small figure seemingly suspended in its interior. The interior of the box is rimmed with the same thorny edges. A decorated tin of Prince Albert tobacco is positioned off-center to the left. Below the tobacco tin is a small vignette of a girl in overalls holding a pail approaching the cage of an overized bird. Cacti cutouts are along the edges of the interior. Signed and dated on the backside.
