Hot Pink Speckle Two-Part Large Obelisk


Acrylic and shellac based inks on Ingres paper; book binding board

A medium-size, hand-constructed obelisk, created by two stacked components, and wrapped in pink and white porphyry-inspired hand-painted paper. The two pieces separate, the bottom portion acting as a columnar box with a removable, flat lid. The interior of the box portion is painted a bubblegum pink. The artist has stamped his initials "TE" on the bottom of both pieces.
