Reliquary. Artist book in a box. / 6 November 2014

If I am in a reliquary does that make me a relict I wonder?

The dictionary describes a relict as 'a surviving remnant of an natural phenomenon'. That just about nails it I think.

Thanks for that comment's encouraging to get such positive feedback. More from this artist box to come.

Love the illustration and the antique photograph protector case is a great idea to me, as it would be a surprise to open the case up and not see a daguerreotype or ambrotype or tintype, for instance. It's so evocative.
