Missing links

New box-- continuing to mine my collection of odd objects. I keep saving things for the perfect use, but am getting old enough to hear much more clearly a voice asking me "If not now, when?" A trip to Galapagos earlier this year got me thinking more about evolution. This box is an assemblage of fanciful creatures, using metal found on the street, shells, driftwood, taxidermy eyes, forged steel, bones, walnut shells, pods, orthodontic cast, metal hardware, teeth, tusks, quills, dried fish. I was thinking about "missing links" in old explorer specimen collections, maybe from an unknown corner of Africa. Many new species are discovered every year. Maybe I can get one of these new finds named after me.
