lucia di lammermoor - Eccola! (The Mad Scene)

1,295.00

always with stairs.  always with red.  poor poor lucia.

the first of a series of five opera fine art marionette boxes.

if you can, please take a moment to read, in more extensive detail, about this project in our blog here.  (www.lovinganvil.com/marionettes/lucia-di-lammermoor-eccola-the-mad-scenewhere you can also see a video of the box in action.

it is truly my labor of love/passion/insanity and tremendous conviction.  an idea that started many years ago and even then has taken four or five years of more focused work to bring to fruition.  

ultimately this is an art piece and meant to be explored with contemplation and meditation. as one is not able to interact with it virtually, the detailed description is necessary.

4.5in x 8in and (12in tall) - reclaimed walnut wood exterior, white pine interior.  the lid removes to expose control mechanisms for window and marionette.  a solid bronze heart handle for window control.  1.5 inch viewing window.  when opened, light turns on inside the box.  An original composition inspired by Lucia's aria is triggered by button near front bottom of box.

equipped with a micro usb cord to for the internal rechargeable lithium ion polymer battery.  faint blue light is viewable from notch on back of box to indicate charge available.  when no light can be seen, it is necessary to plug in/charge box via usb cord.  (because of the lipoly battery this art piece will ship via UPS or FEDEX ground only.  International shipment is possible, but would require removal of lipoly battery where the box would only function via micro usb cord)

lucia herself is quite small, about 4.5in or 11.5cm.  you (most likely) will find she requires very slight movements of the strings to make what seems like a large movement within her world.  but.  there are no rules and the viewer's (puppet master's?) mood is what gives life.

i worked with the tremendously talented carpenter Andy Arch to help bring these boxes from the ether to existence in our realm. i am eternally grateful for his ability, patience and ingenuity in decoding my (babble) vision.  

I worked with the tremendously talented musician Emily Hope Price for the heartbreakingly beautiful contemplation on Lucia's famous aria.   her depth and passion leaves me breathless at each listen.
