Egyptian kings trophy box.

I envisioned a box made for an ancient king. I used wenge for the top and legs alternating with birch for the contrasting colors to match the african porcupine quills I used for the border and the handle. I used massacar ebony veneer to accent the black all in concert together for the traveling tribal ancient look of a kings trophy box . The boxes are 10’’ high x 16’’ long x 8’’ wide. All this and Heaven too.

Interesting detail on the legs. I can see grimacing faces on each of them, as if they are guarding their treasures. Beautifully done!

Thanks for the comments the legs remind me of king Tut’s gotee on his gold striped sarcofogus .

Irreverently, they also look like my daughter with a frown on her face wearing her favourite leggings. But as a box? well, nigh on perfect I’d say.

Another beauty, very Egyptian looking and as always your innovative use of other complementary materials to accent the woodwork adds a very special and exotic feel.

They’re so cool, I don’t even want to see inside. Yup, just like a sarcophagus.

You could have dug these up from a tomb, they are so authentic looking. You would expect them to walk away. Great job!
