" Nolite te bastardes carborundorum" - don't let the bastards grind you down. This piece was inspired by The Handmaid's Tale. It started with an oval tray that I covered the inside with old sheet music. I painted the rim black and wrote quotes from both the book and the movie around it. Attached to the tray is an old wooden cheese box. I added rusty flat nails on the sides and the top. I covered the inside with pages from vintage books. The Handmaid is made with an ethically sourced mummified chicken head and squirrel feet as hands. Her cape is made from red fabric and her cap from white fabric. I added rusty chains to show her confinment. I added the words 'Nolite te bastardes carborundorum' to a vintage tin lid.
This piece is 15" tall, 11" wide and 3" deep.
