I got the idea for this box after seeing a book at a yard sale for $1. A Calendar of Saints by James Bentley chronicles the history of Christian saints.  This particular project quickly became one of my favorites.

Inspiration can come from anywhere. The pictures for this box came from a college textbook on art history that I bought at a yard sale. The sides, which aren't shown, were too detailed to photograph effectively. Each side contains a cross-section of a painted cathedral dome ceiling. For alternate views, click the links below.

This box is the result of another yard sale find. The Book of Saints by Rodney Castleden, which I purchased for a whopping $1, is a beautifully illustrated history of Cristian saints. It begged for a box.

This box was inspired by 20th Century British artist Francis Bacon's Papal Portraits of 1953. Bacon, who disliked Pope Innocent X, expressed that dislike in a series of paintings interpreting Portrait of Pope Innocent X, painted in 1650.

This box is also from The Papal Portraits. Diego Velazquez was commissioned to do the original painting. Like Bacon, he wasn't a fan of Pope Innocent X and painted a smirk on the Pope's face. To see both versions side by side, click here.
