This burgundy faux leather shrine, prayer box or icon cabinet opens up to reveal the sacred and mysterious icons inside. A prayer box sits on a flat surface like a table, desk or shelf and creates a sacred space to provide a private worship experience in any location to pray or meditate quietly. There is lots of room inside to add your own personal mementos, photos, printed prayers, rosary beads, or sprigs of herbs or flowers to enhance and personalize your worship experience.

The shrine is made of burgundy vinyl stitched with white thread, with areas of black plastic, black cardboard and black fabric. The front is embellished with a metal cross and findings that look like miniature tiles. It has a masculine look to it and would be a good for a man, but could really be for anyone. I can picture it in a traditional library, on a bookshelf or on your desk.

The inside is embellished with art paper on the shelves. There is a votive candle included in a glass holder. Two varnished Gothic icon prints are on each door that are revealed when opened, one of St. Francis and one of Madonna and Child. There are little felt covered tabs on the bottom of the doors so they will stand open, but still close securely. When the top is opened up it reveals a varnished print of a painting of the view of heaven with small areas of mirror showing. The votive candle should only be lit in the upper area or in front of the prayer box and NEVER LIT IN THE LOWER AREA OF THE PRAYER BOX. If you want a candle in the lower area, please use a battery-operated one instead.

This repurposed box is not new so has some scratches and dents but is still in good (but not perfect) condition. 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 was probably a men's jewelry box or art set box in its former life.

It measures 9 3/4" tall, 12" wide and 6" deep. It is fairly heavy, 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.
