So today I discovered you can buy fairly large bell domes at Hobby lobby! I love displaying things in cases and under glass!
My mother has a giant antique one under which she's put a stack of old poetry books, a pair of antique glasses, a little mouse figurine, and other such bits and bobs....
So I was inspired by her display to incorporate books. I adore the Jungle Book so I'm using my ancient copy as the anchor for the whole display. All the other items I plan to place under the dome will be inspired by the stories from the book/movie and the characters in them.
Here are my ideas thus far:Hathi the Elephant:
* Antique elephant figurine (I know just the one, it's at the antique store here and I've been coveting it for almost a year)
* Old 20s elephant celluloid charm
* piece of elephant skin. Kaa the snake:
* Hatched python eggs (may have one to sell btw)Rikki-Tikki Tavi:
* Mongoose skull
*Cobra skinThe Jungle setting in general:
*Parrot featherSher Kahn:
Old 20s Tiger Celluloid charm
Now I just need something to represent Baloo, Bagheera, "King Louie", Tabaqui the jackal, Akela, and Mowgli.
Any ideas? Do you have anything that would be interesting for this display?
