“History of Henry” by Ashley Thayer
Bugra, over marbled antique paper, book  cloth, antique button, various papers, gold tooling, inlayed pictures
“This is one of my more abstract ideas- a Hexagon of the History of Henry. My son is named Henry, and while he’s not named after anyone in particular, I was curious to learn more about some of the early English rulers (I-VI). I thought I was finished with it, but may add feet to the bottom and finesse the the spinning component… I had great fun making this and don’t want it to end! “
