This small prayer box or shrine in a luminous aquamarine blue opens up to reveal a sacred early Renaissance painting by Giotto of the removal of Christ from the cross and a embellished candle holder 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 a candle in a glass cup embellished with a vintage jewelry finding to light while you pray, and still some room inside this small box to add your own personal mementos, photos, matches, printed prayers, rosary beads, or sprigs of herbs or flowers to enhance and personalize your worship experience.

The outside of the vintage wooden box is very distressed with chipped and scraped paint which reveals the natural wood underneath. It has a sacred print of a painting of angels in the sky with a tree on one edge that is the upper part of the original painting. The print is varnished and lightly outlined with iridescent aquamarine glass microbeads and broken rhinestone jewelry findings on each corner.

The inside is mostly kept natural unvarnished wood with the varnished sacred print on the top lid and some beautiful varnished abstract art paper on the bottom.

The glass candle cup is embellished with a vintage rhinestone jewelry finding with aquamarine stones. The candle can sit in the box and be lit safely sitting there, but after it has been blown out the wax should be allowed to cool and harden before it is tipped sideways to store on its side in the box. The box stays open about 1/16 of an inch with the candle cup inside. There is no latch.

It measures 6" by 3 1/3" and is 3 14" tall. The inside is 1 1/2" deep.

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