Forest Angel Box Drawer
This Forest Angel has a hand over her heart in a moonlit forest. Is this forest in jeopardy? It may be dead or dying; can an angel save it?
Under the angel, under the forest, we see a display of a few mysterious items. These represent a tiny glimpse of the complex web to be found in the earth beneath our feet.
I have completed the lighting framework and cover, and you can see the general effect now. There are still a few details that I will have to decide before I can complete this piece.
I will mount the roll of LED rice lights so that these can be easily replaced in case of failure. I cut three holes at the top to make light wells and painted them black to match the box color. There is “glitter tape” in the center light well, added to test the effect. Not sure that I like the conspicuous golden glow (bling!). I could extend a few of the LED’s down to light the bottom layer, but I don’t know how best to do it! It is relatively easy to make a hole in the back, and bring a few “bare bulb” rice lights through it. It would be more difficult to create diffused light without the individual LED’s showing.
