Part of the Lovely and Amazing series, this compartmentalized box holds a panorama style book with panels (based on one of Hedi Kyle’s designs), as well as the remains of a small rodent in an enclosure sealed at the top with mica. The book pages are laser etched fabric mounted on card stock. The book panels are backed with inkjet prints of photographs taken by Ruth in the 1940’s overlaid with various specimens and laseretched acrylic. Recessed into the front cover is a beaver tooth, overglazed with etched mica. On the underside of the box lid is a lens held in place with etched book board. The top lid of this box has text on fabric, again scanned from Ruth’s scrapbook.
