Artist Kenneth Webb brings us this phenomenal copper and brass reliquary.

"The lid of the coffin allows viewing of the inner passenger to those who look closer. The lid is also hindged and opens up to reveal the chains that keep the bone in place. The whole thing (minus the bone) was Patinated black. I went back with a brass brush to soften the finish, and used a polishing wheel to wear down the edges. The idea was a worn piece that has been around for a long time."

A beautiful piece of metal work. The overall size makes a good pendent.
