Cleaning up my studio yesterday I became distracted when I pulled this old piece out of a box. Its lived all its life in a cardboard box, (not unusual when it comes to my odd sculptures), so felt it was in need of a bit of loving. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this piece, it is now hanging in my studio.
I polished up the outer wood with beeswax and sealed the wood on the inside. The photo has had more gold leaf added as well as butterfly wings and has been raised back from the wood, instead of being pressed against the opening.
