Description

Growing up in the 1970s and 1980s during nuclear proliferation, I recall hearing stories that in the event of World War III the only winners would be cockroaches who would go on to inherit the Earth.

This box is the result of my pondering how must cockroaches feel now, 30 or 40 years on from those warnings. It is now 2014 and mankind has stubbornly failed to destroy itself. Having waited long enough, I imagine cockroaches making their own atom bomb in an attempt to become the planet’s rulers!

This started off as an interesting study of cockroaches but once I got to thinking about it and carving, it turned itself naturally into a Black Box.

You will find German, Madagascar and American carved into the piece. These refer to three well-known species of cockroach.

Also on there is 210mph. Size for size, if we moved as quick as a cockroach we would run at 210mph.

Inside is a Tiny Treasure cockroach. This one is designed to be used as a pendant (if desired!). It is holding its head as cockroaches can apparently survive for weeks if decapitated!
