Wood box, carved and painted.  I spent the better part of my childhood growing up on Miami Beach with a lot of Jewish and Yiddish influences.  This is in honor of those years and all the amazing culture nuances I picked up.

The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.
