Large Deer  Box


The design is based on the red deer of Lascaux cave. 

Burnt umber paint is airbrushed on to a beautiful weathered 6" x 6" slate tile, then I carve into the surface of the stone to create lighter,  detailed line work. The pigment is earth-based, so this painting could survive for 30,000 years, just like the first cave art. The slate tile color varies from grey to gold. I don't usually put varnish on my stone paintings, but I put a light spray of archival varnish on this stone so that it may safely be wiped clean and withstand gentle handling. The stone begs to be touched!

The box has a cherry finish which contrasts nicely with the stone's colors. The bottom is lined with black velvet. The box is 8" x 8" x 2.75" tall. The space inside the box measures 6.75" x 6.75" by 1.5" tall. It weighs 3.5 lbs. Signed on the bottom. 

This box would make a great gift for a man, woman, nature-loving teen. or your favorite shaman.
