A medium-sized, hand-constructed spire created by three box components. The bottom box is situated on a plinth and is topped with a flat lid. The second box is simply of rectangular form and has a similar flat lid for the third piece to rest on. The top box has a more articulated, dimensional body and is lidded with a pointed top. All pieces are wrapped in a pink, orange, and black hand-painted and marbleized paper. The interior of each box is painted gray.
