A uniquely shaped, hand-constructed box sitting on three tapered, pointed legs. The removable lid caps the piece with an obelisk form which mimics the pointedness of the three legs. The box is wrapped in a green and black malachite-inspired paper and a trim of a gold metallic quality has been painted around the edges of the box. The removable lid reveals a black interior. Stamped by artist on underside.
