I made this money box as a gift for a friend who perform the christening for her baby. She is romanian, but married in Belgium. The box is Romania map, and the woodburning represent our ancestors (yes, Dracula too), and on the back, I compose a small poem where the first letter of every lyric represent the name of the baby.
Is made from lime tree, finished with varnish.

That is beautiful and something you don’t see very often. Craftsmanship ans attention to detail are very evident.

How long did it take to burn all those details?
