Another layer in the box/book about achieving inner knowledge. A cabinet of things to be curious about and to take out and examine before you can proceed : a reliquary of received beliefs, a treasure chest of material possessions , and a book of things you think you know. All three must be removed from the cabinet in order to pull up the locking rods. These pieces were made in the Parkland community college studio metals class I have been taking this semester (and highly recommend) The book is from my handmade papers, oak boards, leather. As my body falls apart, I am moving away from steel and more into non-ferrous metals. Also examining my accumulated tools and giving away those I no longer use. Knowledge and beliefs are harder let go of.
