Reliquary to the Moon

I was in high gear during my stay at the Visual Arts Center in Anchorage, Alaska. This is an ambitious piece that used repousse for the faces. It is fabricated of brass sheet and acrylic at the base. I made use of brass nuts and bolts to join the pieces. The faces can be removed to allow the placement of illusive lunar relics. The face assembly is allowed to spin through the pierced opening in the elongated oval brass plate. The rivets are decorative.
