Here is the finished piece! I mailed it to Mary before I went to San Diego, and it arrived safe and sound. She was pleased; I was pleased. What a pleasure it was to work on! The shrine is clay, painted, and housing some of her favorite treasures, from the wealth she shared with me.
My favorite: the little torso that has transformed and has wings. I hope to be in the mixed media studio frequently, and on a regular basis this spring, and use more of these little dear ones in shrines.
