Learn about musical boxes crafted by hand using an old-fashioned technique called paper theater, a form of miniature theater dating back to the early 19th century in Europe. Each art piece was designed integrating the same mechanisms created decades ago such as manual strings that produce one-minute of melody with 18-notes of limited movement. The boxes, crafted by Hispanic multidisciplinary artist William Ríos, display hand-carved quotes, images, and miniature details allegoric to renowned personalities of the world of literature, painting, music, theater, and film.
