Reliquary I is about the importance of our cultural lives. I started with a salvaged painter's box, and added some debris paintbrushes I purchased from a Waveland craft store that was flooded in the storm. The carved wooden piece with it's columns and the brass fragment symbolizes architecture, and the miniature, leather bound copy of "Midsummer's Night Dream" points to great literature. The back of the box is covered with some old sheet music from a debris pile in Waveland and the rusty key in the box tells us that it is our culture that makes us who we are. 17" x 13" opened. SOLD May 2007
