A hand-constructed, rectangular box with a pyramid capital on the removable lid. The pyramid shape is repeated on the four sides of the body of the box. The entire piece sits on a plinth and is wrapped in a white, pale pink, and orange porphyry-inspired, hand-painted paper. The lid can be removed to reveal a hand-painted paper interior, similar to what is found on the exterior of the box.
