Mine had letters from friends, letters to the future self and little toys I bought from Gacha Gacha machine (you put a coin and turn a lever attached to the machine, a capsule containing a toy comes out) in Japan.
I used to bury it with friends as a time capsule on the corner of school yard or side of local shrines and temples and we made a promise that we would dig it up after 10 years.
We would go back and try to dig again after few months despite the promise - but we never found our treasure boxes again. It's still a mystery.
Treasure Box is one of the latest etching print.
This brand new print will be exhibited at Metropolis Gallery in Geelong, VIC Australia as part of a group exhibition Animal Instinct from 5 -19 March along with many diverse and amazing printmakers in Australia interpreting animals in their works.
