Cigar Box Retablo

My first attempt at a cigar box retablo is inspired by the work of Art Smith, specifically his "Spirit Boxes", some of which can be seen here. I made it to donate to FALA's Chairs for Change silent auction. Titled "Ex Cathedra #1", it's a story/poem illuminated by vintage photos and plastic toys. The text inside reads:

Uncle Tim spent countless
bourbon-soaked afternoons
staring into the past


Inside Left

Inside Right


Opened Facing
