Cigar Box Madonna

This piece just "came together" while I was creating a few heartwings pendants. I used the lid from a cigar box as the base and the "madonna" is from a Whitman's Candy tin. The wonderful labels were already adhered to the cigar box. The piece measures 6" high x 5" across and has a three-dimensional look created by the use of spacers between the layers. The entire piece is fastened together with the use of microfasteners. The embellishment at the top is from a Victorian dresser.
