With this unique box I wanted to make a combination of two earlier items. It is the combination of a high freestanding box with straight legs and a displaying cabinet in which I used curved shovel handles.
After placing the 110 cm long shovel handles at the box it became obvious that this work had to become a proud, elegant animal. For depicting an animal, the curved shovel handles brought in an extra dimension of movement in its expression.
Placing a curved cupboard leg at the front side of the box made this cupboard leg look like the neck of a big bird. So I had the base for a big proud bird.
Having made cabinets with a peacock decoration before it was obvious to me that this box had to become a peacock.
