mirror·image:Noticing the drawing and etching themselves mirrored one another, it was clear the idea of mirroring was an important factor.
The pairing of Adam and Eve and the doubt and curiosity seen in the work suggested the case itself should work harmoniously together to become whole. The carved and inlaid artwork on the outer casing is designed as a mirror image of each side and when fully open it fits together like a jigsaw.
