Description
This object was the inspiration for George Maciunas's sprial-box design for the deluxe edition of the catalogue for Yoko Ono's one-woman exhibition "This Is Not Here" at the Everson Museum in October 1971 (M26462). The hinges allow the box to be lie flat when opened, exposing the contents.
