The top of this lovely little box (just 4" on each side) has been hand painted with a vivid violetear hummingbird, caught mid flight as it zips in for a sip of nectar! Beautifully rendered in jewel-bright tones of turquoise, green, violet and blue, this box makes an eye-catching, unusual accent piece for any age. Flowing around the sides of the box in hand-lettered script is a line from a poem by John Banister Tabb called, fittingly, The Hummingbird: "A flash of harmless lightning..." An apt description if ever there was one! This box is the first of a series of three.
Desk, sewing room, living room, this box will grace any surface. Make it practical by filling it with small items like safety pins or cotton balls, or just set it out to admire. And because I create each one by hand, no two will be exactly alike, ensuring you a one-of-a-kind piece of usable art!
The box is beautifully handmade by Designcraft Industries out of solid poplar, and each one is hand-painted with original artwork by Lara Eve Designs, using all non toxic acrylic paints and sealers. Designs and colors can be customized to suit your needs, just ask! Each piece is signed and numbered for authenticity.
