This beautiful shrine or prayer box has a windowpane cabinet front that reveals the sacred and mysterious icons inside. A prayer box sits on a flat surface like a table, desk or shelf or hangs on a wall and creates a sacred space to provide a private worship experience in any location to pray or meditate quietly. There is room inside to add your own personal mementos, photos, printed prayers, rosary beads, matches or sprigs of herbs or flowers to enhance and personalize your worship experience.

The shrine is made of distressed buttermilk-painted wood and glass and is embellished with vintage broken rhinestone jewelry in purples, pinks and iridescent including a little "crown" made of a vintage brooch that sits on top.

The door opens to reveal the inside which is varnished blonde wood and embellished with art paper. A postcard of the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe embellished with gold glitter and a large floral rhinestone jewelry piece are adhered to the back. There is a votive candle in a glass holder that should be set in FRONT of the shrine when lit and NEVER LIT INSIDE the cabinet. A battery-operated candle should be substituted for the real candle if you want to light the candle inside the shrine.

In true shabby Cottage Chic fashion this box is distressed and looks worn and vintage but probably isn't. The piece was designed purposely with these distressed aspects, and if these "imperfections" don't seem right to you, please don't purchase it.

It measures 13 7/8" tall without the crown, 15 3/4" with the crown, 7 1/2" wide and 4" deep. It is quite heavy and breakable, hence the pricier shipping.

This would be a treasure of a gift or a way to create a spiritual area for your own prayers.

I am a fast shipper! Any shipping overcharge over $1 will be refunded to you via your method of payment.
