Brief Description: I made this for a swap, and now that my partner has received, I can post! I traced some Greek art onto this awesome paper and modpodged it to a papier mache box that I had altered so that the lid was hinged rather than a lift off type. I used grosgrain ribbon to hinge it, and a small piece as a pull tab for opening. I lined it with some pretty paper. Here's a (VERY) brief synopsis of the Pandora story, for any who may not be familiar: Pandora was a daughter of Zeus, sent to earth to be married. Zeus gave her a box and made her promise never to open it. Unfortunately, the mystery
just got to be too much for her curious mind, and she took a peek, thereby releasing into the world all the evils known to humankind. But left in the bottom of the box was a tiny little thing, called hope. Hope flew out of the box to help combat the evils that had been set free.
On the top of the box is pictured a sphinx, who according to myth, would ask you a mysterious
riddle, and if you got it wrong, it ate you.
The Greek lettering on the front means "do not open".
...and hope, which was in the bottom of the box (this should look familiar
And my haiku!
I think it's funny:
