Description

The previous purse was unpleasantly sullied. I up-cycled it to be a eerie handbag.
The images are curtesy the Rijks Museum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. All the titles of the works and their artists are inscribed inside the box.
The cover is the devil sowing the seeds while the sowers sleep. Most likely based on (pardon the translation) the verse "evil works while good sleeps" from Matthew. I feel that happens all too oft these days, and so, I considered it scary. The back is Jesus going into hell to either release or check up on things. The lid is the rich man being mad that the beggar Lazarus made it to heaven and he's in hell. He's being scolded for not paying attention when he had the chance. The bottom is a man being brought into hell. All this is good and scary by my standards and the standards of the renaissance when these images were drawn. I also added the tassel.

Brand: up cycled
Issues: the leather is old, which looks really cool on a scary purse, but it should be conditioned occasionally to keep it from cracking. I'm not a master decoupage-er, so there are some flaws in the application
Up-cycle: the wood had to be patched in spots, some of which you can no longer see under the images, leather conditioning
Use: holiday, occasional, everyday, collectable
Where made: USA
Dimensions
Height: 5.75"
Width: 2.63"
Length: 11"
Odor: decoupage
Smoke free, pet friendly, vegetarian
