Memorial Box Replica
Replica based on the ancient American artifact.
The original box, along with several other artifacts, was found in the 1880s near the shores of Lake St. Clair while the owner was digging a basement for a house. They remain in the private collection of the family.

Although the true purpose of this box is unknown, it is thought to be associated with a funeral or memorial in some way. Using high-quality photos of the original, artist David Lindsley has pain-stakingly recreated this slate box. The box measures about 9" wide x 5" deep x 7" high and is cast using plastic resin, hand painted to simulate the original slate, and includes real copper corners.
