The thing overlooked
The thing that is found
The thing that has no worth
The thing that sometimes has history
AND then, of course, I have a weakness for beautiful old things that I buy occasionally: atlases, dictionaries, primers, storybooks.
My main concern with this collage is that the hands are too much perfect. I covered them up & colored the fingernails gray.
In the upper right corner is a 1898 Two Cent Documentary Stamp. This is a revenue stamp first issued during the civil war for collecting taxes, but then the government kept using them & collecting taxes long after.
