Jim Dine envisions tools in imaginary environments in his portfolio titled A Tool Box. In this print, a pulley holds a simple line drawing, which is collaged to the print's surface. As the pulley dangles freely without any support from above, it appears that the tool has a life of its own. Dine's interest in tools stems from working in his family's Cincinnati hardware store as a child. These utilitarian objects hold a personal significance for the artist, who considers them to be an extension of his identity.
