|©2013 Barry Smith - Detail of leather binding of a Travellers' Shrine|
The new pair of shrines were cut from a small worn drinks tray - silver plate over fairly thick copper - very old and a gorgeous pattern and patina. As with my Travellers' Shrines each is made up of: the folded and riveted metal box lined with felt; a small offering bowl (can double as an incense bowl); an incense stick holder; some short lengths of Japanese incense; a peace leaf; and a small mat to set out the shrine. Photos of the competed pair follow.
