Covered in artificial hair, nails and metal grasshoppers, Lucas Samaras' self-portrait "Box #25" has some delightfully creepy Halloween appeal.
It is part of a series of 135 numbered boxes created by Samaras from 1962 to 1989. They vary in size and materials, but all connect his idea of the box to our daily lives: "We live in boxes, see and eat with boxes, travel in boxes, and even our days and nights are boxes."
