Nesting Pooh



I recently came across this charaben on the blog circuit, and was immediately struck by the adorable notion of the bento box itself as a "nest" for this cute little sleeping Pooh. It's not often that the charaben artisan uses the box itself as a "prop" in the mise en scène de nourriture, so I feel the need to call it out: who has seen, or crafted, a charaben using the bento box as "object?" What other scenes/backdrops might a bento box represent?

I just did one this week for my son that looked like a billards table...so a rectangular bento was the necessary shape.

I do have one round bento...now you've got me thinking!
