Family Jewel Boxes

They began in a shoe box found on the ground next to a dumpster in an alley, discarded photos from the early 20th Century.  With a bit of reservation I cut photos apart and 'Frankensteined' all of the body parts.  Then channeling Joseph Cornell's box assemblages all of the bits and pieces pieces came together.
