Crystal box and eyelashes
0.4" x 0.4" / 1 x 1 cm
2005 - 08

When an eyelash falls off my eye a smile appears on my face. I carefully put the tiny curved hair on the palm of my hand and, looking up at the sky, I make a wish. I concentrate on the action of pressing both hands tightly together, palm to palm... Great! The eyelash reached the other hand! The wish will come true.

Eyelashes are not easy to find; only few fall off and most of them just disappear with the slightest blow. An eyelash is a small, limited and highly precious treasure as it possesses secret miraculous powers.

My little box contains eyelashes collected with utter perseverance and care throughout time; it is an intimate container full of magic as it bursts with hundreds of potential wishes.
