I started this project as a way to pay homage to the many religious and spiritual traditions that have inspired me in my travels around the world.
An interfaith approach blessed me with many experiences that shaped me as a practitioner.
Naturally, there is no way to encompass the knowledge, wisdom and even failings of any given tradition in a tiny box. Rather than trying to capture the whole, I focused on small aspects to honor in this art project.
Mini shrines are great if you’re traveling, or simply looking for a visual way to express your own unique spiritual perspective.
Altar to Shiva (Hindu). My favorite part of this one is the (faux) fruit offering, which fit perfectly! The border symbolizes prayer beads.
Element of Water in a box. (Various traditions). You may remember this one featured on a recent post about my sea witch altar.
You can get these little wood boxes at the craft store. The possibilities are endless. Try it!
