Art in a box...

Have always loved the art of Joseph Cornell. Just finished my own art box. It's an anniversary gift for the hubby... the theme is all about Jim Croce's song Time in a Bottle
Front: found objects, old leather bound book cover, watch parts, etc. I collect old dictionaries and books that can be used in collages...this is a page on "chronicle to chronoscope".
Close up of inside: more watch|clock parts. I have been collecting old watches for quite a the intricacies these tiny machines.
Close up of right-hand side: small glass vials contain antique watch parts I found on-line, Croce's song is hand-written on continuous velum strip inside large bottle.
Now, should I sit it somewhere or hang it on the wall?
