Bree Woodward

This trio of canisters is inspired by ancient Egyptian canopic canisters, with a rainforest animal theme and celebratory colors. I wanted to explore a macabre idea and make it bright, fun and positive. My approach was "If my organs were put in canopic jars, which animals would be my guardians to the other side?"
