Pansies on a Faux Marble Box

This project began as a simple wooden box with no hardware. The flowers are painted life size. I wanted the Pansies to have all the varied  attitudes of the real world.  There are buds, seed pods and fading blossoms as well as wide open ‘faces’! Of course there is a visiting honey bee near one long edge.  This is Trompe L’oeil;  The marble is not real. The clasp is not real, nor are the hinges.  The cover still lifts off to open!  The photo of the ‘block’ of marble is the underside of the box.
