Pictured above is the shrine I have made and donated to this incredible cause. It is a tribute to the children of Oaxaca, and is truly art from "mi corazon". It is made from wood, encaustic wax, found objects, antique "Charlotte" dolls, silk flowers, antique nails and mica. Names of children (in Spanish) appear around the edge of the shrine. It measures 10 x 13 x 3". I am an truly honored to be a part of this amazing cause! Many other talented artists have also made and donated some amazing cigar box shrine artwork.
