GOTIJ Rubber Bands from Dean Marks in Paris, France!

This cannot be easy. Dean collected multi-colored rubber bands...and then, "wove" them to create a great happy haptic mail art piece. A joy to the eye and to the touch, and plink-plinck...music to the ears, too!

I can use it as a harp and wander the idlylic Greek forests...strumming odes to the gods and goddesses...

The cardboard base is 20 x 25 cm or 8 x 10 inches...not small, AND arrived just like that, safe and sound, not one rubber band snapped in the mail!

Now I have a Rubber Band! thank you, Dean1 xx

(And I'll get back to ya all about those 158 verses of the POEM, from which a few verses where adapted for the Greek national anthem)

I didn't even get the whole 'rubber' reference until just now.

Dean has FANTASTIC mail karma! The wonder of his creations that pass through the postal system unharmed.......

Don't tell me he has sent like this, without envelope, and they are all there!! How does that happen!? Wow

Hmm, what means "she gives him French letters too" here? Is she passing secret notes to him?

Nancy, we know Dean's secret: he has that cute little gal at the post office ( she gives him French letters too)

I counted 60 colorful rubber bands and all of the finest quality. I can twang away for hours and not one snaps or cracks or pops! But nice sounds really...plink, plink, plunk...

Fantastic piece, Dean, and even more fantastic that it survived its postal journey. Almost too fantastic to be believed, but this along with the glove must mean you just have fantastic postal karma.

Exactly, Dean...radevou...the real way we should spell : rendezvous in Paris in February!

Still working out the words; P= R, NT=D, etc  that spells: RADEVOY?  It's all Greek to me.
