16th Century Gothic Boxwood Miniatures Carved With Biblical Stories


You don’t have to be religious to appreciate the craftsmanship and artistry of these boxes. Inside and out, their designs are intricate and exquisite. I can’t imagine sitting for hours carving these tiny scenes for hours. The benefit of life without TV and the internet. Once the cows are fed the rest of the day is all yours.

I wonder if more of these boxes exist? Different countries, different styles. They would be amazing to see.
