Loretta Weeks for the 2012 Coffin Hunt
Loretta Weeks was one of thirteen artists selected to create a pair of coffins for Hidden Los Angeles and CreepyLA's 2012 Coffin - a thirteen day long scavenger hunt where one coffin a day for thirteen days would be hidden somewhere in Los Angeles, and clues released only that anyone could decipher to help lead them to these one of a kind works of art.
One of each artist's coffins was used in the hunt, while a second companion coffin, like this one, is being made available on eBay.
Each artist was given a small wooden coffin to start with.
Loretta's coffin has a gargoylish creature painted on the lid, with a Latin phrase of some sort written along it's edge (a curse perhaps?). The interior is lined with fabric, suitable for holding precious jewelry or the remains a very, very small creature.
A perfect work for any collector who enjoys macabre art, horror, goth, gargoyles, and and coffins.
