An old neglected shrine to an ancient and forgotten minor woodland deity.
Made from the bottom half of an altoid tin and the figure is a Tim Holtz statue. I baked on a set of polymer clay horns, and aged the whole thing up with acrylic paints. The dead vine is a wire and ball pins wrapped in floral tape. Looking at it now, I think I will paint the vine as it's a wee bit too green and well, tapey looking.  Smiley
Really hard to capture the color on this one. I should know by now not to photograph in bright afternoon sunlight!
