If Boxes Were People (Installation)

Gene LaNore's avatar Gene LaNore

Installation: 67 stained glass boxes that represent people, Heaven, Mother Earth, and groups of people. The age and gender of the box is determined by the size of a leaf or a butterfly or box size; a leaf being male and a butterfly being female. Small being; a child or young adult, large being; an Adult or Aged Adult. Androgynous boxes are decorated with a heart and God or a spiritual person has a double leaf. The box I call Ariel, started the collection and represents a fictional character. All of the boxes have names and are viewed in a display that resembles a house the picture does not do the display justice! There are several unique boxes; Wounded Warrior, Valentine, Officer, The Lieutenant representing the men and woman in blue, Jesus who bears the key to Heaven, The Music Teacher, find a family of 3, of 4 of 5, to name a few. Look carefully as the daughter on Family of 5 is hiding in plain site. If boxes were people, they would live in a house, the display resembles one.
