With such a particular model I wanted to create something that made the observer wonder as much as the sculpt itself made me. Painting technique had to take a step back to let the sculpt, mood and frame take center stage.

I wanted to keep the meaning subjective. Is this a cherished memory safely kept in someone's mind? Are we spying on a private moment by opening this box?

This has been one of the most mentally stimulating pieces I had the joy to work on, also thanks to the other artists I've discussed this idea with.
