item three in the cabinet of curiosities
Item three is the bundle of matches found in the apron pocket of the poor frozen matchgirl. 'The Little Matchgirl' has to be one of Hans Christian Andersen's saddest stories. The small model I've made is just a prototype at this stage. What I'm attempting to create is one of the visions the girl sees inside the match flame as she sits outside in the cold and burns her last few matches for warmth. The vision in this case is a cosy interior with a decorated Christmas tree and a glowing fireplace in the background.
