Freya Baska's Get Better Box / by maja baska

My sister Freya graduated from The National Art School last year. Her final printmaking work was housed in her very own purpose built little house. The Get Better Box was based on a childhood tradition, when we were sick we pulled down a special box from the attic. It was full of fun minatures, word games, collected niknaks, boxes within boxes and lots of glittery treatures. Because we were so ocupied adventuring around the contents of the box we forgot how sick we felt. (Or in my case, I forgot to stick the thermometer under the light bulb to fein illness.)
