Curse (from the Curses series)
3.8 x 9 x 4.1 cm
A series of boxes cast in lead.
They are solid. They don't open.
Palm-sized and amulet-like, they ask to be carried about as little burdens.
They talk about heirlooms and genetics; the passing down of undesirable traits and hereditary madness. About containment, concealment, secrecy, Freudian repression and not being able to forget.
They cast shadows like guilty stains.
