This small "shrine" has a theme of self awareness. It reminds me that by thinking I am an artist I am one. The front of the door shows a figure in thought. On opening it shows the "muse" inside – the spirit that moves us to create. The quote "I think, therefore I am" by Descartes is a fundamental philosophical notion of self-awareness.
The whole piece s made of book board, old book pages, card stock scraps, and Golden acrylic paints and media. Embellished with fabric, beads, wire, embroidery thread, and toothpicks! (as the muse's glow.)
