Box - Sep 11 by mszafran Box - Sep 11 by mszafran
It's a sort of box thing made out of a log, with a name on the front and a Celtic theme. I've no idea what you call one of them, I made the idea up myself.

This was made from a piece of fallen Yew tree. With the exception of some sanding on the flat sides, it has all been hand sawn and carved. Everything except the bark has been beeswaxed. Probably about 50 hours all in.

It is roughly 290mm x 200mm x 160mm at its biggest points, and about 3.6 KG in weight.

Current thinking is that the triquetra symbol has no real meaning, although some do cast religious meanings on it. For me it was a nice space filler :D The other knot on the left side means nothing, I designed that one myself.

The Celtic dog symbolises loyalty, they were also meant to bring luck to villages. Also the new owner likes doggies.

It has little felt feetsies so that it doesn't scratch any surfaces it's placed on.

Kit used for the photos:
Olympus E-620, Olympus 35mm macro, Hoya UV filter, Olympus Fl-36R flashgun, Sto-Fen diffuser, Phottix Atlas wireless transceivers, hand held.
