Dia de los Muertos

It is finished!  This is the cigar box shrine I made to be auctioned off to benefit the street children of Oaxaca. 

I added more glittery embellishments and other detail on the inside.  The outside is a collage framed in traditional cigar box banding.

I wrestled with this piece a bit, but once I got the idea of the exuberant background for the wedding couple, the rest came easily.  

See here for more information about this auction. I will also be posting more information here in the future.
