Alice Falling

Falling down the rabbit hole. This is a chance for me to show off a part of my collection of tiny things. The wooden shelves are an old drawer for holding metal (hot) type.

This is the February image for the Wonderland Revisited 2010 calendar.

mum said...

oh boy, this is great - the composition and the background. (Is it a happy accident or a planned one that Alice seems to be grabbing onto the watch as she falls?)

C- we need to talk about this bloodthirsty tendency - I realize you need to have a response to the Alice stuff outside of the conventional range and all, but dude!

Marvelous!

Bee said...

Fantastic! We used to have those kinds of treasure boxes . . . we called them "shadow" boxes.

Eva said...

The genuine old drawer provides the right atmosphere. Beautiful!

Delightful! I love your collection in the printer's box. Mine shares some of the same things. Precious keepsakes.

Down the rabbit hole she goes! And yes, those drawers make great shadow boxes! Fantastical assortment you have :)

Titus said...

Stunning. Lovely tiny things too.

ArtSparker said...

Bee- you have just completely unintentionally gotten me into trouble...simply because I went out for a walk and green tea, came back over-freighted with ideas, and now have yet another one born from your comment. It's okay, as my sister-in-law said to me a couple of days ago, I forgive you.

Jasmine said...

Caio! You leave Alice alone!

Susan, I love it. My dad has a drawer like this full of my great grandfathers fossils. Not his own fossils of course... things he collected.

If this is a part, the whole must be a (tiny) museum... (where + when did Alice lose her headband...?)

ArtSparker said...

Ger - the headband does not make an appearance until Through the Looking Glass -'s true.

Liza said...

I love this post! So imaginative, so Alice!

ArtSparker said...

Mum - I hadn't even noticed the watch - you are right.

Tom said...

Speaking of killing Alice (and yours is lovely!)--any thoughts on how Tim Burton will either raise her to new heights, or totally botch the job? His track record goes both ways.

ArtSparker said...

Tom - The stills I have seen would seem to indicate that Burton is going with the standard perverse cliche. I'm unlikely to see it it cause...Meh.

California Girl said...

no, maybe this is my favorite.

Sorry Alice, I know I should be looking at your, but....
All those tiny things. What is it about tiny things?

lettuce said...

Isabel said...
