The Making of a Retablo

The components:

A box,
some silver paint,
a black hand print,
a peacock biwa pearl,
a bit of abalone shell,
a pendulum of rutilated crystal,
some quartz dipped in gold,
red silk thread from my grandma’s sewing chest,
a prophecy given to me a long, long time ago,
the tree of life,
some imagination,
and a whole lot of mystery.

to be continued.
