A handmade chest filled with imaginary remedies for all problems.
Ahmah's Box
A GCE 'A'-Level Final Project
This artwork is based on my imagination of my grandmother, as a gardener who grows whimsical herbs that can treat all of her problems, be it physical aches or emotional stress.

It is a box filled with hand crafted tools and packets, with an illustrated garden journal on the inside.

Every item has a special, imaginative story behind it,

Photographs from her youth and illustrations of my memories as a child.
