This tombstone shaped shadow box shrine celebrates Edgar Allen Poe and his poem "The Raven". The front of the box has a digitally altered picture of a doorway with these words from "The Raven" on it, "Suddenly there came a tapping as of some one gently rapping rapping at my chamber door." A handmade clay skull door knocker is layered over the door. The back of the box has a digitally altered picture of trees in silhouette with ravens and owls in the trees and various stanzas from "the Raven" on it. Both pictures have a painted edge to give them a bit of a blood streaked look. When you open the door you will find a large photo of Poe's grave with a large 3D image of a raven over it. I added moss to the floor and included a small skull. On the other side of the box you will find a skull cameo above photos of Poe and of my interpretation of the "rare and radiant maiden" Lenore. I digitally altered a copy of a vintage photo adding a skull face to the woman to create Lenore. There is also a picture of a raven sitting on a bust of Athena. Over Lenore is a handmade clay coffin and between the two of them is a metal sign reading Nevermore. The collage is layered over a decorative paper that has been torn and distressed with paint. There are three paper roses along the floor. The box has been painted black on the outside and red inside and on the base. The black has been dry brushed red for a bloody distressed look. This is a perfect piece for any Poe lover or anyone looking for a bit of literary art. Need some inspiration for your dorm room? This compact shadow box shrine with it's literary gothic theme would be the perfect piece.

Approximate Dimensions: 6 ¼”H x 4¼”W x 2”D
