The Box Show: A Mazed Minotaur

As promised we return to the dreaded box--but no longer blank.

This year for the annual Box Show we decided to do a Minoan themed box employing motifs and images associated with the ancient city of Knossos (This is about as reasonable as any other theme we've come up with).

Here's the process:

Molly's begins painting the blank box. The images of woman are from the famed "bullfighting" (bull jumping?) fresco from the Minoan temple at Knossos on Crete.

Larry works up sketches for the Minotaur.

Final drawing transfered to a heavy weight art paper

Inked by Larry. Painted by Molly. 

Gel medium applied and image cut out.

Minotaur is inserted into labyrinth/ temple

The 15th Annual Box show runs from July 26th until September 8, 2013 at Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station, California.  The reception is Sunday, July 28th.
