The piece I had commissioned from artist Flora Davis was completed in late June:
The metal surfaces of each box are glued and covered in a protective layer, and the sides are finished with a metallic paint.
The piece now also has a title: For Luna. It seems appropriate, as both Davis and I have cats named Luna. And of course it is a nice tribute.
It was exciting to see it complete and take it home. The final step will be to display the artwork. Combined with the companion cat painting Zeus, the five boxes can be arranged in any number of ways. Here are but a few examples:
I have yet to settle on a final arrangement.
