Apothecary Cabinet- Field Specimen Collection Cabinet

I was inspired to build this collection box after visiting the smithsonian museum of natural history in Washington DC last fall. It’s based on a exhibit of animal bones that were collected for the museum. The bones were held together with brass fittings and were a truly work of art. These are Specimens that I collected and mounted in my shop. 

Sculptures are held in place by magnets. All title tags and hardware are brass. Each sculpture has brass rivets mounted in several places.  Case is 20” x 20”  when closed 40” x 20” when opened.
