One on Top
This box is made of an old mystery part, expanded metal top, textured copper and a cheap, flag-pole eagle. The liner is white rabbit fur.
To me, there is a lovely irony in showcasing this poorly-cast, brass eagle upon a discarded memento of industrial strength and the indulgence of fur. Albeit, on of the most common furs you can find. The meaning is elusive enough to leave something to chew on.
