Maman Marie's voodoo shop

This is what I got in return for my Day of the Dead embroidery! My very own voodoo shop mixed media collage! this pic is a closeup of the detail and doesn't show the very cool frame area, which has sheet music painted. The details in this are absolutly amazing. All the wax used in the collage is from her bee hives. The little bottles each contain something different, skulls, lavender flowers, peppercorns, dried moss, and what to me looks like corriander seeds. The little voodoo doll is made from clay and so detailed he even has pins. I'm so in love with it that I'm still trying to figure out the perfect place to hang it! I was going to save it for the library, but it is way to cool to hide away there so it will be going in the living room.
Thanks Acidtrix!
