homage to joseph cornell
The things that have always struck me about Joseph Cornell are: boxes within boxes, asymmetry, star charts, circles, spheres, glass objects containing things, and of course, birds. The bird is a Black-Billed Barbet (Lybius guifsobalito), native to East Africa. The upper left box contains 19th century mineral specimens. The lower left is from an educational chart about development of ants: it's an ant in its egg.
