this piece evolved from my cathartic box mangling incident on friday. the link below the picture will take you to more shots--and also pictures of the curio box i recently sanded/stained and arranged for our coffee table (that's not so much art as a warm-up exercise, but since most of my projects seem to be shrines, i see fit to include it in that flickr set.) the link on the picture will take you to my flickr account, if you haven't seen it.
there seems to be an initiatory & healing element to this process, which is significantly more of a surprise for me than it probably is for you.
