And below- a new Little Red Riding Hood Box (woodburned and painted maple top and base, ipe sides), with a wolf inside, and a new glass-topped box: koi etched swimming under lily pads and a water lily. The box is swirly mahogany, and the inside base is lacquered blue and green in watery swirls. It will be lovely. The pic is of the top being clamped together.
Holiday cheer to all who love Greek mythology, fairy tales which seriously threaten girls' lives in weird psychosexual ways, and tranquil pools of swimming fish.
