Love's Alchemy

"Bitter is made sweet through love;
copper becomes gold through love.
Through love dregs become clear;
love heals all pain.
Through love the king becomes slave;
love brings the dead to life."

These words of Rumi served as inspiration for my cigar box shrine, Love's Alchemy. I have also included them on the front "door" inside. Symbols of wisdom, change, love, and joy are used throughout in this mixed media tribute created in a traditional wood cigarbox.
