The dolls house is an exact replica of the 1872 Victorian town house in the East End of London where Shonibare lives and, as in many of his other works, Dutch wax-print cloth covers miniature furniture in the house. The two-storey house includes miniature cabinets, chairs, tables, fireplaces and a bed, along with reproductions of paintings by Shonibare and Jean-Honore Fragonard.
