"But certainly the most mysterious object of all was what David called “The Magic Box.” This wood crate was stored under David’s bed until he died. The box contains a collection of symbolically loaded objects—toy bugs, skulls, target pins, flowers, rocks, soil, currency, and religious trading cards. Many of these figures appear again and again through David’s artwork. So in many senses the Magic Box seems like a mini museum or an archive of David’s feelings, filled with the personal artifacts, which infused his political rage."
