Object Description
Flat, rectangular box with opening flaps at the top. The flaps stand open, revealing a mound of beetle carcasses filling the opening. The box itself is made of hide, with metal rivets spaced around the edges on the front. The rivets fasten on a plastic (?) panel with the ghostly repeated image of a man on a tractor. The panel covers the two narrow sides and the front of the box, but not the back.
