I love this fragment, it went inside the lid of The Egypt Box (one of the story boxes I made a while back).

Almost done, I just need to shut the lid of the inner box and wire the capsule into that empty cavity.

This is where the box-inside-the-box-on-top-of-the-box sits, it is removable.  I’ve changed around the scarab on the top since the last photo was taken, and as soon as I put the map inside the lid of the box-on-top-of-the-box, recopy the hieroglyphs and demotic on to some antique paper (regretfully, not papyrus), roll that up and put it in the capsule, and affix the wire to hold the capsule in its place it will be done.

Then a good-bye photo, and off to its new home.

The top of the box, with a scarab and an amber bead.

I love the patina on old materials, and the strength of something that has been around for many decades or more than a century.  Some pieces are so beautiful, they must have been someone’s valued possession.  I’m glad they weren’t tossed in the trash when an old dresser drawer was cleared out, especially since I search for small, already broken things – usually the first to go into the bin.
