Tatiana, I like this one especially well. The shape and the title are well matched. The third photo really shows the detail and rhythm of this piece. What a nice job of matching your work with the shape of the box. You are a true artist and are certainly working at your craft.

I do think the metal clasp takes away from your final product. You might consider a simple lift like this for your boxes.

I am sure you could come up with your own version, but you get the idea. Keep chipping and keep posting.
