Sacrament began with an old wood box, the outside of which I affixed milagros, metal crosses, beads from a Saints bracelet, and a polymer medallion. On the inside, I collaged bits of found and handmade papers, fragments of photographs I took in Europe, an image of a Russian icon on a block of wood, more beads and an oval piece of glass. I have seen icons like this in the homes of some people, generally those whose religious beliefs played a big part in their lives. 11" x 8" x 4" closed
