"Medicine Woman Front" Encaustic Box
Taken from an original charcoal sketch by the artist, the image was manipulated and re-sized for use in this piece. It is printed on archival watercolor paper
and attached to the coffee-stained wooden frame with copper nails. The edges of the box are wrapped in a thin strand of copper sheeting. The image is then covered in Encaustic process
using organic natural-tone beeswax and damar resin. The wax covers the
top of the image leaving the copper exposed on the sides. As all
boxes are assembled by hand and with love, some imperfections are
evident and embraced. This includes the natural properties of beeswax
and its unique malleable nature creating drips and creases.
