I made this for PureOath in the One Tiny Star Trek Thing Swap. I've never made a shrine before and I'm super proud of it! The box is approximately 2 3/4" cubed with little feet.
The outside of the box represents the Klingons so I covered the box with polymer clay to look like galaxies, the covered the edges with a black to red filligree. The writing says:
heghli' meH Qaqjejvam- It is a good day to die
and after the seperation it says
ghIj quet jaqhmeyjaj- May your enemies run from you with fear
The shadow box has a batliff that I made with clay, silver leaf and some string, it says
Qapla' batlh je- Success and honor
The inside of the shrine represents all the different aspects of Jean Luc Picard. *swoon*
The lid says:
Things are only impossible until they're not. -Jean Luc Picard
His official side is represented by a communicator pin, Klingon symbol and Captain's Log with the star date (I calculated it on the official star trek website) and official message to #1: "Make it so",
His proper side has earl gray tea, flute, croissant and book.
Jean Luc's dark side has a Borg ring, phaser and bloody dagger. There is a bundle of matches with a paper that says "There are four lights" (that one actually hurt to make)
His fun side is represented by music, words, a glass of wine and holodeck
Whew, I think I got it all!
My partner loves it and so do I.
