Here's my tribute box for my sculpture and ceramics class. It's for my grandpa. I made the actual cross out of foam core and lotsa tape and paper mache. Then I just painted it...yeah...haha...he was a very religous man. On the top shelf (all the shelves are attatched to eachother with copper wire) is a picture of him, and a religious book of his, along with a card from his funeral. Hanging from the top shelf is a line of pennies (that I connected with wire) from his coin collection. Hanging from the far left shelf is a picture of him and my grandma. From a birthday party I guess? I don't even know. On the right shelf, there's that little blue guy and another copper thing. The blue guy is an ordament that was given to my grandpa by one of his students. He's holding a little sign that says "Mr. Sears". Teaching was a really big part of his life. Next to that is a little mini ashtray, which you can't see that well in the picture. It doesn't look as crappy in real life, haha. The red beads hanging is actually my grandpa's rosary hanging from a nail that I put in there. On the next shelf down there's a religious tape that he made, with "Glorious Mysteries" written on the label. It had his writing on it which is why I chose that particular tape. Then there are some pictures which are just from his childhood. On the very bottom shelf is a lighter. It's really hard to see in the picture, but it's there. Haha. Lastly, hanging from the bottom shelf is a pendant of Father Solonas. I don't know anything about him other than he was my grandpa's favorite paster and I guess he even went to visit him when he (Father Solonas) was dying.

Let me be the first to say that this is really amazing....being into the Day of the Dead as much as I am, I believe in honoring those that have passed. This is an excellent way to honor your grandfather and I think its really beautiful.

That is really stunning-- I've been wanting to make something for my grandmother who passed away.  You have inspired me!

And don't get discouraged by the lack of responses...I think it just depends on where you post. This board doesn't get quite the traffic that say, the Miscellaneous Board does. That's pretty much why I post there most of the time.
