Description

This decoupaged box started out as a pet project, a labour of love, as a gift for a dear friend. For some reason this box was tricky. It took twice as long as I expected. The birthday came and went (my friend got a different gift) but I couldn't quite forget about this box.
It is covered in alchemical symbols and palmistry images. The inner lid has an alchemist universal magick map. The bottom of the inside of the box is covered in a soft brown felt (a symbol of earth).
I almost prefer the base to the lid, though it is busier. It took a lot more layers to do it "right" than the lid did!
I mixed herbs and spices into some of my layers of glues which you can still feel in some places, despite the varnish it has had on top of it.
I toyed with filling it with incense or curios for myself, I like it that much but the reason I sell on here in the first place is because I simply can't keep all my creations, I don't have room!
I am now thinking about making another one and taking pictures from a really old palmistry book I have! I digress!
It is a large box 17 cm across by 15 cm wide by 10.5 cm deep. The inside is smaller due to the lips on both bottom and top. It could fit tarot, oracle or divination cards comfortably or perhaps jewelry, knickknacks or incense.
This would sit comfortably on a tarot readers table or boho chic living room, for those with altars and shrines, or those who "just dabble".

    I guess that the dark goddess portable altar box illustrated above is meant to be used at the new moon, so it must stand to reason that this one ought to be used on full moons. Well, never mind, I digress. So compact, so lightweight and oh so very discreet! Thanks a heap for both, they sure will come in handy.

    Perfect for my particular living arrangement, as it's a very small place with no privacy and very little free space to work in. Nevertheless, it's really cool, this mini altar for practitioners on the run. This one, and the other which follows, took only a few days to show up on my doorstep. I just might become something of a regular at this fine seller's store.
