Funny Bunny box

This small glass topped box is hard to see in it’s entirety in a blog format. The picture is a found photograph someone took of a bunny at a drainage ditch. The bunny is tiny compared to the enormity of the area it was in and the rest of the picture so I took a good bit off one side of the photo. Then to bring the attention more to the bunny goodness I smeared some white gesso (it looks blue IRL too) around the edge and made a little bunnyhead drawing on the lower left side. On the bottom of the box I wrote Funny Bunny over and over again in pencil. There is some journaling about the photo and what appealed to me about it along the front edges of the box and the sides. I found an old fashioned looking bunny illustration in an old Compton’s Encyclopedia that I cut out and glued to the outside bottom of the box, completing it. These pieces are actually little thought experiments for me. Why did somebunny take this bunny picture? Why did they keep it? Is it their bunny or a wild bunny? Why were they at a drainage ditch? Pick a thought and build a box around it, that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.
